Local family receives keys to Habitat for Humanity home – the third family to benefit from the Habitat program in the community.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE – Dave, Stephanie, and their children proudly received keys to their Habitat home in Rocky Mountain House. The home ownership opportunity was made possible by a strong local committee, volunteers, donors and a generous donation by the Cote family in memory of the late Honourable W. Helen Hunley. The local Habitat committee spearheaded the fundraising for the home on 53A Avenue that was renovated by local volunteers.

“It’s been a very rewarding experience to mobilize volunteers and donors to raise funds and complete this home renovation,” said Clark Bertagnolli, Project Leader, Friends of Habitat Edmonton – Rocky Mountain House. “What’s even more rewarding is that a local family now has a bright future ahead of them.”

The project in Rocky Mountain House was completed by local volunteers and a local committee, and is overseen by Habitat for Humanity Edmonton.

“All of us at Habitat are delighted to celebrate alongside Dave, Stephanie, and their children, as well as the local Habitat committee here in Rocky, who have done an incredible job of engaging the community to renovate this home,” said Karen Stone, President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity Edmonton. “We are so grateful to them for addressing the need for affordable home ownership in their community, and helping us to ensure that families can succeed.”

The Town of Rocky Mountain House has been a supporter of Habitat’s work in the community.

“Families are the heart of our community,” said Mayor Tammy Burke. “On behalf of the entire Rocky Mountain House town council, I am thrilled to welcome the family to their new home and thank Habitat for Humanity for its ongoing presence in our community as a partner in providing safe, affordable housing for our residents.”

Habitat for Humanity Edmonton thanks each and every member who has served on the Rocky Mountain House committee for their leadership and commitment to helping families achieve strength, stability, and independence in Rocky Mountain House.
