Free to be me: Amanda’s Story

How are you living unboxed? The answer varies from person to person, but at Habitat for Humanity Edmonton, we believe that living unboxed means having the freedom and the space to do something new that you have always wanted to do. Starting a garden, travelling, decorating rooms without restrictions – anything is possible!

Yes, You Can! Become a Habitat Home Owner today

Owning your own home is not as daunting as it may appear. When you think of homeownership, images of happy, thriving families come to mind, but you often don’t think about the journey it took to get to that point. In reality, many Albertans cannot invest in savings at the end of each month once bills are due, and it is difficult to break free from the rental cycle. At Habitat for Humanity, you are not defined by your financial status, your job, or your story. We are breaking the mold to help you see that yes, you can. Yes, you can own your own home today. Yes, you can invest in your community without fear. We believe in the foundations of strength, stability and independence. So what does that look like for you?
