Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands is pleased to announce its newest Habitat family. Ashley Sloan and her family have been selected for HFHTI’s Oxford Mills build.
Ashley Sloan and her two children, Khalan aged nine and Gryphon aged eight, currently rent in the Oxford Mills area and are pleased to be given the opportunity to own their own home. Ashley works in the Kemptville area.
Habitat families undergo a rigorous application process and income guidelines apply.
Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands, using a combination of professional trades, volunteers and donated materials, builds homes for people who would not qualify for a traditional mortgage. Families buy their homes at fair market value and provide five hundred hours of sweat equity while Habitat carries a zero percent mortgage with geared to income monthly payments.
The finishing touches are being put on the Oxford Mills build and occupancy will take place early in the new year. A home dedication ceremony will be held at this time to recognize volunteers and local contractors who contributed to the project.
Meanwhile HFHTI is already working on its next project, a duplex to be built in Brockville. Family applications for this build are currently being accepted and interested families can contact Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands at 613-342-3521 or email at [email protected].
