We are happy to share our 2023 annual update with you.
Thank you to each and every one who supported our efforts this year! Together, we can build homes - and hope - for families in communities throughout our province.
The NB Housing Strategy: Housing for All was officially released on June 29, 2023. The strategy focuses upon preventing residents from becoming unhoused and identifies $500 million over three years in new and previously committed funding by the provincial government and its strategic partners such as Habitat for Humanity New Brunswick and Ability New Brunswick.
Habitat for Humanity makes affordable homeownership accessible by removing barriers that make owning a home impossible for many lower income working families. The generous support provided for Habitat for Humanity through this NB Housing Strategy will see a provincial commitment of $70,000 per Habitat home for 10 new house builds annually! We are so very grateful for this support and are pleased to see additional investments in affordable housing.
On June 15th, Habitat NB - along with many of our incredible partners, donors and volunteers - had the absolute privilege of officially welcoming four families into their new homes!
As of April 1st, 2023, Habitat for Humanity Saint John, Fredericton Area and Moncton officially amalgamated to become Habitat for Humanity New Brunswick!
