Habitat for Humanity - Huronia
Since 1997, we have provided permanent homeownership solutions to hardworking, deserving families in Simcoe County. Families who have benefitted from a Habitat Home have experienced better health and financial security, their children get better grades in school and the local economy benefits from tax dollars and local spending.
Habitat families purchase their home at Market Value with a no interest mortgage after volunteering at least 500 hours to help build the house.
Our two ReStores divert more than 350 tons of waste from local landfills every year and provide quality home improvement products and furniture to local shoppers.
Want information on our newest build in Angus?
Habitat for Humanity Huronia is proud to introduce our newest family, the Kovachev's.
Georgi, Maya and twins daughters Lachezara and Dobromira will be our 35th. family build, the third in Angus.
"I started to look on the Internet about how to do it and if we were qualified," she said while the twins used plastic shovels to dig into the ground of the site of their future home. "We heard in March we qualified and I couldn't believe it" says Maya. "We live in Barrie in an apartment. Moving from an apartment to a house with a backyard is going to be fantastic, especially for the kids," Kovachev added. "It's amazing. It's more than we could dream of."
