Eligible families for a Habitat for Humanity home can learn more information at upcoming meetings.
“It’s also an opportunity for them to hear specifically about the builds and what pertains to them,” said Jennifer Dominguez, co-chairman of the Moose Jaw Habitat for Humanity committee. “The next house will actually be designed and built according to the (chosen) family’s needs.”
The family information meetings are on Wednesday and Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Macoun Lounge at SIAST Palliser campus. People can also learn about the application process and pick up an application form to fill out.
Dominguez said eligible families are those whose income is between $24,000 and $55,000 per year with combined income.
“So it can be a single parent or a husband and wife that make that income,” said Dominguez. “Habitat families must have children. That’s one of the requirements too.”
She added families must be employed and have good credit. As well families must be willing to put in 500 sweat-equity hours.
