Working alongside people across southeastern New Brunswick in need of decent, affordable housing, Habitat for Humanity Moncton has helped one family in Hillsborough find a home in 2020, while another family was able to pay off their mortgage after partnering with Habitat Moncton back in 2002.
Ashley and her two young daughters were living in unsuitable conditions when they applied to partner with Habitat Moncton for a rehabbed home in Hillsborough.
“The home wasn’t even finished,” said Ashley when explaining their previous living situation. “We were walking on plywood floors, light fixtures weren’t done, and we were out on a dirt road in isolation.”
But after partnering with Habitat Moncton, Ashley and her family now have a good home to grow in.
“This is where we’re going to live. This is where my kids are gonna grow up, where we’re gonna have family barbecues, and sleepovers. They’ll graduate from here and leave from here. For the first time in a really long time, I feel like I can just settle.”
