Home #46 - Niagara Falls, Community Build

18713161482 B4d5b2792f K

Home #46 for Habitat for Humanity Niagara is complete! Built with the tremendous support of our Niagara community, this new home was constructed in just over three months thanks to community volunteers, trades and construction partners. 

More than 150 volunteers donated their time on the build site helping construct this home from start to finish. 

Mohamed & Hawa Ahmed and their six children have dreamed of owning their own home for a very long time and have been on the waiting list for affordable housing in Niagara for over eight years. They are all currently living in a very small 3-bedroom apartment with no place for the kids to play or get their schoolwork done. 

Mohamed and Hawa made the courageous decision to move to Canada from Somalia due to the unrest in the country and their desire to raise their children in a safe and secure environment. “When my children are older,” Mohammed says, “I want them to see that we did all we could to provide for them and find them a great place to grow up and to make their lives better.”
