The Horton family of Guelph received as they put it, “a Christmas miracle” December 9th, as Habitat for Humanity WDG along with partners, supporters, and volunteers alike dedicated the newly completed build project at 327 York Road to its newest homeowners.
The Horton family, Simon (dad), Cyndi (mom), Kathy (grandma), Brenden (15), Taylor (12), and Liam (9), are overjoyed to be starting fresh in their new 4 bedroom, 2 bath, home. “We are so grateful to be able to invest in ourselves, to be homeowners, and to be able to stop dumping our earnings into rent” says Simon. Simon is a full-time employee at Linamar and Cyndi works part-time at Walmart. The family will be leaving behind a small, overcrowded townhome with complex rules prohibiting the kids to play in outdoor common areas and with repairs needed throughout.
