I’m pleased to report that the Community Home Replacement Program’s first project has started off extremely well given our late start into the building season!

It was our pleasure to participate in this project and kick it off with a “Ground Breaking” ceremony held last week on December 7, 2016.  There is so much local community support for this project all the way from residents though great companies like Hammond Lumber and Matthew’s Brothers!

But most of all, I’m thrilled that the kids at Foster Tech will be involved in this project. They will have hands on experience with green building technologies that will help them make better homes for the rest of their building careers!

Absolutely everyone should have access to better homes, and we couldn’t be more proud a part of this project!

Below are the three known articles links if you’re interested in learning more about the project:

Since last Wednesday – the home is growing from the ground up and they now have a poured frost wall with the likelihood of the students beginning their work early next week.

Wishing you all a great holiday season!!!

With Love, Emily Mottram
