Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region has a vision of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. We are honoured that the Tachane Foundation Inc. shares this vision.
The Tachane Foundation has partnered with Habitat for Humanity Canada and local Habitats across the country to empower more people through access to decent and affordable housing. Today, Habitat Peterborough & Kawartha Region is excited to announce a $15,000 gift from the Tachane Foundation that helped make decent and affordable homeownership possible for an Indigenous family in Lindsay.
“We are so grateful for the Tachane Foundation’s compassionate support,” says Sarah Budd, CEO. “No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life, and a decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health, and success. The Tachane Foundation’s generous contributions truly make a difference in the lives of families in our communities and help to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it abundantly clear just how important a safe and stable home is for everyone. Our neighbours and our communities who were already struggling with unhealthy living conditions and unaffordable rents are now joined by many more who have lost incomes as businesses have closed and workers have lost jobs.
Habitat for Humanity is needed now more than ever. A Habitat home is a strong foundation for a family, an opportunity on which they can build a better life. At Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region, we’ve seen first-hand how building safe and decent homes, and offering an affordable mortgage, gives families the solid foundation they need to build themselves better futures.
But none of this is possible without the support of our partners and communities – thank you Tachane Foundation for helping to create better, affordable living conditions for families across Canada.
