Starting to look like Home!

Every day, our West Kootenay (Castlegar) 4-plex is getting closer to having four qualified, selected partner families start a new life in a home they own! Our beautiful build is starting to take shape with the start of some finishing touches.

From the exterior siding to the interior cupboards and flooring. We can't believe that in less than 3 months families will be moving in!

Stay tuned for our next update at the end of this month when we will announce the date of our special Key Ceremony where we turn the keys over to our new owners and partner families.

It's still not too late to apply to be one of our Habitat for Humanity partner families!

Click on the “Home Ownership” tab at the top of the page and apply today. Or click on one of the links below for more information.
