Home dedication ceremony welcomes 15 Habitat homeowners into the community
TORONTO, Oct. 24, 2017 /CNW/ - Habitat for Humanity GTA will be joined by over one hundred members of the community, including, Etobicoke-Lakeshore MPP Peter Milczyn, Minister of Housing and responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy, Habitat volunteers, and donors, as they welcome 15 Habitat homeowners and their families into their new Habitat homes. The Pinery Trail home dedication ceremony marks an important moment in the charity's history, as they celebrate homeownership for the first 15 families moving into homes at their largest build project to date, a 50-unit townhome development in Scarborough. People moving into the homes are working, low-income families that have been living in crowded, unhealthy, unsafe, and unaffordable rental accommodations. All families have completed 500 volunteer hours of "sweat equity" in lieu of a cash down payment on their homes, and take on the responsibility of a Habitat for Humanity mortgage.
