We’ve done it.
Habitat for Humanity has secured land in Orangeville, Ontario!
After an extensive search, Habitat WDG has officially closed on the purchase of a property on Broadway in Orangeville on which preliminary plans call for the building of six affordable homes for local families.
Site planning is led by a volunteer committee of local industry experts and Habitat staff who will work closely with both Town and County of Dufferin planning officials.
To build on this scale, Habitat is raising funds through individual donations, sponsorships and partnerships. Please consider making a donation by visiting here and choosing “Dufferin Build”, or contact Sharron@habitatwdg.ca to find out how you can partner with us to support the build.
“There is an urgent need for affordable homes in our community, as about 10% of Dufferin County is living in poverty and one in every nine households are living in conditions that are unsuitable, unsafe and unaffordable,” says Steve Howard, CEO of Habitat WDG. “Through our build on Broadway and our future build efforts, we will work to solve this problem, and we hope that our community will join us on our journey to do so.”
“This is just the beginning,” says Howard. “We hope to build as many as 30 affordable homes in Dufferin County over the next few years, and we look forward to developing partnerships with other social agencies in addressing the need for affordable housing.”
“Habitat WDG is committed to building a world where everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home, and our experience in Dufferin County has proven that our community shares this vision,” says Howard. “As we move forward with this multi-unit build, we are asking that businesses, organizations and individuals do what they can to help us build.”
