Building homes and hope
Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North
Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North is set to make a huge impact in the Comox Valley. The non-profit, whose mandate is to use homeownership as a means to break the cycle of poverty, recently finalised the purchase of a parcel of land in Courtenay that will house 10 families when building is completed.
