A Springhill family is closer to owning its own home through Habitat for Humanity.
Joanne Bernard, Minister responsible for Housing Nova Scotia, announced government will support building the first Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia home in Springhill.
“We are pleased to be on board with Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia to support more families own their own home,” said Ms. Bernard. “We committed this year to support the work of Habitat for Humanity across the province and this is another example of our commitment in action.”
Housing Nova Scotia will contribute $25,000 toward building the single-family home in Springhill, which will be ready by summer.
“We are very appreciative to have Housing Nova Scotia committed to supporting our program through financial or land donations throughout the province,” said Marie-France LeBlanc, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia. “Without this kind of support, access to homeownership for modest-income working families would not be possible.”
The minister made the announcement at a Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia home dedication recently in East Preston, where Housing Nova Scotia donated the land.
