A Sarnia woman and her granddaughter were given the keys to another Habitat for Humanity home last week.
The complete home renovation at 601 Elm St. was completed by volunteers, together with 500 hours of “sweat equity” provided by new owner Ann LaForge and her friends.
“These are the feel good moments that we strive to make happen for local families in the community,” said local CEO David Waters, noting the project helps address Sarnia’s affordable housing shortage.
Habitat has assisted 56 families and 180 individuals since 1994 by building or renovating and then selling the homes with a zero-down, zero-interest, geared-to-income mortgage held by the agency.
Revenue from the Sarnia ReStore covers $100% of operating and administrative expenses, ensuring all donations go to building more homes for families.
