The legislature says Habitat does important work in the province

Progressive Conservative MLA Bonnie Mitchelson recently sponsored a private member’s resolution celebrating the good work of Habitat for Humanity that received unanimous support in the Manitoba Legislature.


Mitchelson says the work they do in more than 15 communities across Manitoba builds much needed affordable housing and helps break the cycle of poverty far too many live in.


Habitat for Humanity was first active in Manitoba in 1985 with the construction of a home in Winkler.  Since then more than 300 homes have been built through the support of community donations, volunteer efforts of more than 2 thousand people each year and by 40 staff members. The Habitat 53° Chapter in Flin Flon was officially launched in May of 2012.


Mitchelson adds through Habitat for Humanity Manitobans who may not otherwise be able to own their own home gain self-esteem and pride that comes with home ownership through a no interest, no down payment
