Affordable Home Ownership
Working alongside our partner families and community volunteers, HFH Wood Buffalo builds simple, modest homes that are then sold to our partner families through an affordable mortgage. Donations from local businesses and suppliers help keep our construction costs low.
In 2018, we will be building a duplex in Stone Creek and giving a hand up to two local, hard-working families.
Wildfire Recovery Program
HFH Wood Buffalo launched the Wildfire Recovery Program (WRP) upon our return to Fort McMurray following the devastating Horse River Wildfire in 2016. The WRP works alongside uninsured and underinsured homeowners to rebuild their homes that were lost in the wildfire.
WRP families contribute all that they can financially to their rebuild project. HFH Wood Buffalo helps fill the remaining gap through volunteer labour and donated money and materials. As with our Affordable Home Ownership program, partner families also need to contribute volunteer labour to their home.
We currently have two projects under construction in the Beacon Hill area. We have three more scheduled to follow in 2018 in Abasand and Stone Creek.
