Habitat for Humanity build great thing for Okotoks


Dear Editor,

I was excited to hear that the next Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta Foothills Chapter build will be in Okotoks!

I was a past member of the Foothills Chapter and participated in the build in High River so I know how much volunteer effort and community support is required to get the build to this stage.

Affordable housing is very limited in the Foothills.

We need more housing options so people can live in the communities that they work in.

Habitat for Humanity is part of the solution as it focuses on building affordable homes for families that would not typically be able to enter into home ownership.

The Town of Okotoks, Anthem United and Morrison Homes should be commended for their support. My hat also goes off to the dedicated volunteer members of the Foothills Chapter who continue to put in many hours raising funds and awareness for builds in the Foothills area.
