Anyone who would like to apply to the hand-up opportunity have until February 15 to send in their applications. The opportunity offers a family who would otherwise not have the means to afford a down payment on a home a chance at home ownership. In exchange for 500 hours in sweat equity, Habitat For Humanity provides a no interest, no down payment home catered to the family’s needs built through volunteer labour and donations. The Springhill build will take place at the corner of Princess and Main Street, and is centrally located to the downtown amenities, the Junction Road Elementary and hospital.
Applications for prospective candidates can be found online at www.habitatns.ca and clicking on apply in the top toolbar. For more information, applicants can contact a selection committee member by emailing family selection committee chair Marion MacDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
