It Takes a Community to Build a Habitat Home
The first Habitat home in Oxford, Nova Scotia will be located on Little River Road, just off Lower Main Street in Oxford. A parcel of land in this location, as well as the servicing of lots, has been generously donated by the Town of Oxford for a number of Habitat homes, to be built over the next several years. In addition, both Oxford Frozen Foods and Housing Nova Scotia have generously agreed to support this Habitat for Humanity development with funding donation for each home built.
On this, the first of several Habitat homes in Oxford, Nova Scotia, we will be using a construction method used in other Canadian jurisdictions. CorCan is a key rehabilitation program of the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) and the Springhill federal penitentiary has agreed to provide both construction of interior walls and other home components as well as onsite labour for construction of the Oxford Habitat homes.
Looking for Gift-In-Kind Sponsors
Our goal in every Habitat home is to build the home with as much donated time and materials as possible, keeping the costs down and keeping the homes affordable. Can you donate materials to help make the Oxford home a reality? We can use all sorts of materials, including lumber, flooring, roofing, siding, tools, windows and doors. We will also need the donation of trades services including plumbing, foundations, electrical, well drilling and others. Please contact the local Steering Committee Members or you can contact Brighid at firstname.lastname@example.org.
