Over 100 community members come together on a Habitat build site in Scarborough to witness families receive the keys to their new Habitat homes for the first time
TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Habitat for Humanity GTA is set to hand over the keys to 13 families at their Pinery Trail build site in Scarborough. The Home Dedication Ceremony will take place on World Habitat Day - the United Nations designated day to recognize the basic right of all to adequate shelter.
The Pinery Trail Home Dedication Ceremony marks an important moment in the charity's history, as they celebrate homeownership at their largest build project to date, a 50-home build project. People moving into these homes are working, lower-income families that have been living in need of safe, decent, and affordable housing. All the families have completed 500 volunteer hours of "sweat equity" as a down payment on their home, and will take on the responsibility of a zero-interest Habitat for Humanity mortgage.
