Don’t miss out!
Our Habitat Yorkton Chapter has an online auction fundraiser to help raise proceeds to build our 10th home in Yorkton from February 6th-11th. Take a look at their auction page to view all of the amazing prizes to be won and to place your bids. The online auction can be found here.
By bidding on the items, you are helping a family build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. The families we serve in Yorkton depend on people within our community across Saskatchewan for Habitat to build them a safe place to call home. You don’t necessarily have to live in Yorkton to help out that community, as Habitat builds in many different locations across Saskatchewan and welcomes the help of all people.
I am sure you have heard the saying, “it takes a village,” and not only does it take a village, but it takes time, especially when our non-profit organization is spread so far!
The pandemic made it painfully clear how important it is to have a safe and decent home and that far too many people don’t have the homes they need. As we face continued economic and societal uncertainty, it is more important than ever that we help lift each other up. But we are also at a pivotal moment for housing affordability in this country, and we must harness to implement solutions that result in more families having safe and affordable places to call home.
Our housing crisis needs all hands on deck, not just the Government’s hands but people in our communities as well. This is the time to move forward together and help create housing solutions for the low-income individuals and families who are counting on us. Let’s do this together!
