HfH Edmonton’s Blog: Family receives keys to a home of their own through Habitat for Humanity renovation project.

Rocky Mountain House, AB — A local family received keys to a newly renovated Habitat for Humanity (HFH) home amidst volunteers, supporters and HFH staff. The project was spearheaded by a local committee who helped raise funds and renovate the home for a deserving family.

“We are so pleased and proud of what the local committee has accomplished here in Rocky,” said Alfred Nikolai, President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity Edmonton. “Right from the get-go the love, community spirit and enthusiasm to help families was present. The entire community should be proud of what has been accomplished here. We’re looking forward to being able to build homes for even more families in Rocky Mountain House.”

The HFH home in Rocky was initially made possible by the late Honourable Helen Hunley. One family has already benefitted from the home and has sold it back to HFH so that another family can now benefit. HFH homes are affordable because families pay an interest-free mortgage that is never more than 25 per cent of their income. However, these home ownership opportunities are not possible without the support of dedicated volunteers and donors. Habitat for Humanity relies on volunteers and partnerships to serve families in need of adequate housing, and is thrilled that residents and businesses in Rocky Mountain House have stepped up to make this project successful.

HFH thanks each and every member who has served on the Rocky HFH committee for their hard work, commitment and leadership in making Habitat for Humanity homes possible in the community of Rocky Mountain House.
