Home #53 - Welland, Niagara College/Community Build (2016 - 2017)

H4 H 2sml

A brand new Habitat house is being built for Juan Pablo and his wife Luz along with their three children. "We love thecommunity of Welland and look forward to having a stable, safe and secure home for our family; where we can get to know our neighbours and the children can have friends in the neighbourhood to play with." ~ Juan Pablo and Luz.

As part of Habitat’s Youth Building Program, in partnership with the Niagara College Construction Techniques program, over 70 students will construct this home inside their classroom facility over the entire school year. The students will learn highly sought after skills in today’s job market and have the satisfaction of helping build a home – and hope – for people living right in their own community.

The house will be Niagara College's second modular build for Habitat Niagara and will be delivered in five pieces to the Sauer Avenue lot in Welland where it will be assembled into one house, from there the community will get involved in finishing the entire house.

Help us to finish this house for a family in need of a decent and affordable place to call home!
