Habitat for Humanity Wood Buffalo has a number of build projects on the go in the Fort McMurray region through 2019.
Through our Affordable Homeownership program, we will begin construction on a duplex project in the Abasand neighborhood this spring. Two families will partner with Habitat for Humanity Wood Buffalo, working alongside community volunteers and Habitat for Humanity staff to build their new home. Once complete, the families will work towards ownership of the home through an affordable, income-based mortgage (held by Habitat for Humanity).
We will also be completing the remaining Wildfire Recovery Rebuild projects this spring- two homes in the Abasand neighborhood and one home in the Stone Creek neighborhood. These families were uninsured or underinsured and lost their homes in the Fort McMurray (Horse River) Wildfire of 2016.
We need your support to purchase build materials, for contractor costs (for specialized services such as excavating, trenching, etc) and for supervisory and other support costs.
