Habitat for Humanity Southeast BC is hiring for a full time Warehouse Coordinator located in Grand Forks. Please see our Job Opportunities page for more details!
This past spring, Habitat for Humanity Southeast BC was fortunate to have students from l’Ecole Sentiers-Alpins participate in our Meaning of Home contest. As a result, the grade 5/6 class of Mme. Annie Brosseau was further inspired to help Habitat for Humanity Southeast BC provide affordable homeownership in our area.
Along with art teacher Mme. Marie-Christine Bellerose, the decision was made that the proceeds from their yearly art show would go to support HFHSEBC’s work throughout the area. Their annual art show which features student art available for bidding raised $1,277.00!
Habitat for Humanity Southeast BC Board Chair, Neil Coburn was presented with a beautiful handmade cheque and a warm welcome from the students.
Special thanks to the students and teachers who chose Habitat for Humanity Southeast BC as their charity organization this year and to those who supported their fundraising.

In just over a month, since the ground was broken to start the construction of our 4-family West Kootenay (Castlegar) Build, we are excited about the progress on the build site!
saw local dignitaries, Habitat Board & Staff, and local media attend our ground-breaking ceremony that officially launched the build and our campaign of funds. This highly sustainable and energy-efficient project is the first of its kind in Canada, offering some of the highest energy efficiency ratings possible. Which will ultimately mean huge savings in energy costs for our new owners.
As of right now, the Construction of the two 3-bedroom and two 2-bedroom homes is on schedule for Spring 2023, occupancy. Details on the home application process will be announced soon on this website.
Site excavation, basement forms, and concrete have all been laid and we are starting to look like a multi-family home project!
Support from the community has been great! Individuals, local businesses, and major institutional funders have all rallied behind this project to help make it a success.
Special Thanks to The City of Castlegar, BC Housing, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), and the Columbia Basin Trust for their generous support.
