Castlegar 8th Street Build Is Moving Along

Despite the freezing temperatures, our 4-plex build project continues to take shape. When you drive past, you can catch a glimpse of our 4 energy-efficient units and our hardworking crews who work in these conditions to help bring affordable homeownership to our community.

Thanks to the generosity of the City of Castlegar and their donation of land, These units are well placed for our partner families for a number of reasons. Not only are they next door to 4 schools, but are within a walkable distance (within 10 minutes) of multiple restaurants, playgrounds, the library, and community resources including the hospital and community services.

Interior coming together

Our projected finish date is currently sitting at spring 2023. But before that time and our key ceremony where we hand over the keys to our new partner families, we are going to work with local community organizations and businesses who want to help support our build through participating in what we call a Team Build Day. This is a fundraising activity during which local businesses, organizations, or groups donate both time and money to help finish our local build for the soon-to-be partner families selected to own these homes.

Drywall almost complete in all units!

To learn more about team builds, stay tuned for updates soon to come!

We are still accepting applications from families who are looking for affordable homeownership, and we encourage everyone who might be interested to apply.

Applications are online through this link on the Habitat For Humanity Southeast BC official website: https://southeastbc.habitat.ca/en/apply-for-housing/apply-for-home-ownership

This much-needed build would not be possible without the support of our great donors!

Special Thanks to:
