HABICHAT: Fall 2017 News

Helping families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership

Our Largest Build is Well Underway!  
Construction began in July on Phase 1 of "Leacross Landing" in Orleans, our largest build to date. The first four townhomes of the 16-home development are closed in and the insulation, vapour barrier and siding are being installed over the next few weeks.

Our four future homeowners have also been working hard, helping build their homes alongside our Habitat GO volunteers. Please click here to learn more about the four families for Phase 1. 

A special thanks to all of our Adopt-a-Day, Military Build and Youth Build teams, as well as our regular volunteers who have already helped on the site. We recently welcomed teams from the Leacross Foundation, our Development Sponsor, and our major sponsors, including MNP LLPCiscoLaBarge WeinsteinLockheed Martin and TD Bank Group. Please click here to view all of our build photos on Facebook and see our first-ever video featuring drone footage of our build site, created by Waterbridge Media, our Creative Sponsor. The four homes are expected to be completed later this spring. 

If you're interested in getting involved with this build, there are a number of ways you can help out. Please click here to see our volunteer opportunities as an individual or a group through our Adopt-a-Day program. 

We are also looking for lunch donations to help feed our hard-working volunteers. You can donate a lunch to feed 20-25 people or a make of tax-deductible donation of $150 and we'll organize the details. For more information, please contact Jenny Grenville, our Volunteer Coordinator, at or 613-749-9950 ext. 229.
