Community Living-Fort Erie Volunteers
Take Part in the New
Habitat for Humanity Build in Fort Erie
Kory, Scott, Atreyu and Kya
“Family is everything,” Scott said. “Everyday we tell each other we love one another—because you never know what the day will bring.”
It has been an uphill struggle for Scott and Kory to establish themselves after moving to Fort Erie from the United States, but with determination, their vision of a better life for their family is becoming a reality.
“We essentially started life over,” said Scott. “We worked hard and had the support of our family to begin our life here.”
Scott and Kory’s home will be part of a Pan-Canadian Habitat movement celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, along with 50 other Habitat families. As part of this initiative and Habitat Canada’s Indigenous Housing Program initiative, Habitat Niagara will be building a brand new house for a family in need of a decent and affordable place to call home on a lot that was generously donated by a friend of Habitat, located on Crescent Road in Fort Erie.
The couple’s dream for a new house came crashing down when the new mortgage rules took effect and their financial affordability couldn’t hold up to the recent changes. Together with their children, Atreyu and Kya, they cherish their family time and enjoy watching movies together, playing games and building with Legos. Their son plays ball hockey and daughter enjoys gymnastics, and the family is excited to be staying in the same area when they move into their new Habitat home.
The build took place on June 7th, 2017. This year’s Habitat Build Team included the following people from Community Living~Fort Erie: (pictured L. to R.): Jeremy Charron, Amy Mallette, Nicki Boon, Italia Reeves, and Simon Reeves.
Congratulations to all who participated and
