Habitat still looking for family for Bobcaygeon build

KAWARTHA LAKES-Do you know a family who could use a hand up? Habitat Peterborough and Kawartha Region is looking for a second family for its Bobcaygeon build.

“We know that families in our community and around the world have the potential to stand on their own. In some cases, all they need is a way to help themselves so they can build a better life.” says Christina Skuce, Habitat Director of Philanthropy and Communications. 

Habitat Peterborough & Kawartha Region partners with families to help them build and buy their own home through a unique affordable homeownership solution.

“We believe that affordable homeownership brings safety, stability, and self-reliance.” says Skuce. 

Habitat is putting the call out to families currently living in the City of Kawartha Lakes who have a minimum household income of $30,000 – $64,300.

Family selection is underway.

Habitat homes are built by volunteers and donors and sold to qualified families. Habitat holds an affordable mortgage to ensure families pay no more than 30 percent of their income on housing.

If you are a hard-working family who would like to own your own home, the Habitat program may be for you.

Learn more about the steps to affordable homeownership and find out how to qualify.

If you know a local family that needs safe, decent, and affordable housing, please contact 705-750-1456 or email homeownership@habitatpkr.ca.
