Kristen and Anthony were doing their best, but life was chaotic. After moving across the country with their toddler son, they could only afford to live in a more run-down and tight apartment in a dangerous neighbourhood…not a situation that would help a family thrive.
While they continued to struggle for safe, decent and affordable housing, things took a turn for the worse when Anthony suffered a work-related injury that became much more serious. His foot was amputated in order to save his life. After recovering, Anthony had the additional challenge of transitioning into a new career. And while Kristen and Anthony were both working while raising their two sons, they still weren’t able to save for a down payment. Luckily, they learned about Habitat for Humanity’s interest-free, no down payment mortgage gear to their income. After partnering with Habitat, they now live in a safe neighbourhood. Their lives have changed ever since. The financial stability that comes from affordable mortgage payments means they can spend less time worrying about how to make ends meet, and more time planning for the future.
At this special time of year, it’s heartwarming to know that with your donation means other families like Kristen and Anthony’s can get the hand up they need.
You can bring hope to families this holiday season! Please donate today and your gift has DOUBLE* the impact and will be matched, thanks to MCAP, up to $100,000.
* Until December 31st, 2018, MCAP will match your donation dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $100,000.
