Hat's Off to You!

New Chapter in Lundar Manitoba

The residents of Lundar know the value of a safe, decent, affordable place to call home. That's why on December 19th, 2011, the community partnered with Habitat for Humanity Manitoba and came together to open the first Habitat Chapter in the West Interlake. At the end of January, Habitat for Humanity Lundar received its first significant donation from the RM of Coldwell. A Steering Committee has been formed, and Habitat Lundar is hoping to build their first home next year.

New Chapter in Asessippi Parkland

New Chapter in Asessippi ParklandAsessippi Parkland answered the call to become a Chapter of Habitat for Humanity Manitoba after an advertisement in the local paper caught the eye of Asessippi's Economic Development Committee (EDC). The EDC has been working on housing issues for a few years, specifically trying to tend to the need for affordable rental housing and homeownership options.

After three public meetings and some help from Habitat's Regional Development team, Asessippi Parkland's Steering Committee was formed and the Memorandum of Understanding was signed. The sub-committee soon came together and now the Asessippi Parkland Chapter is ready to begin promoting its first project and start fundraising with a spring 2013 build in mind.

Asessippi Parkland's Economic Development Officer Marcia Rowat says, "We've seen excellent interest from the community to volunteer time and talent to our Habitat project. We are very hopeful that things will fall in place!"
