Building Homes...Building Hope

Habitat for Humanity Vermilion is a Project Committee of the Lloydminster Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization.
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses are then sold with no interest charged.
Our goal is to provide families in need a "hand-up" not a "hand-out".

Update

Hello Habitat for Humanity Volunteers
As we are completing the landscaping for our 2011 build, we are beginning to gear up for our 2013 build.
We will try to be faithful to keeping updated information on our website so you can check to see what is happening.
If you are interested in automatic updates, you can sign up here on the website.
 
Right now ...
The deck is nearly done on our 2011 build.
Left to do: railings on the front step
                  gravel to be distributed under the stairs and between the houses on the west side
                  retaining wall installation
                  fence (Leckie and Assoicates have volunteered their time)
                  sod the east end of the lot
                  complete odds and ends in the house (6 mo. and 12 mo. checkups)
IF YOU CAN HELP PLEASE CONTACT US!!!
 
ALSO
This next weekend (Sept. 22 and 23rd) Habitat has been asked to work a fundraiser, the concession at the Ball Tournament.
If anyone is interested in volunteering for a shift, please contact  lindamaryfrances@ymail.com   SEE info below this article.
(Some volunteers who indicated interest in an event like this on their registration forms have already been emailed.)
 
ALSO
We have made some changes on the Habitat Steering Committee and we are looking for someone to 'coordinate volunteers'.
There will likely be a couple more Committee needs once some plans are in place for the next build.
 
Thanks for your continuing help and interest.  We tabulated that over 200 volunteers collectively put in over 2000 hours to date!!
Thank you Vermilion and Region!  A special thanks to our Trades who were so willing to contribute their time and expertise.
