Today’s the big day! Today we bring a deserving family one step closer towards home ownership whom wouldn’t have had the opportunity otherwise. Today we help raise awareness of the growing inaccessibility of affordable housing. Today we are working with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Vancouver to raise money commit our time and sweat for an amazing cause. If you haven’t yet donated, please follow this link to do so. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every little bit counts.
The current Habitat for Humanity of Greater Vancouver development project is down on Ash Street in Richmond. The plan calls for six new modest homes to be constructed. Each unite will be built with a secondary rental suit and a carport. The current development will even include a communal barbeque and picnic area. Our designers love the master plan, knowing that our hard work will help create a literal community is icing on the cake. What makes this day worth it however, is the stabilizing of the lives of twelve Lower Mainland families with safe and affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Vancouver is a local affiliate formed in 1995 servicing Langley to Squamish. Between 1999 and 2013 they had purchased land in Burnaby and built a 27-unit townhome community over six phases. After 22 years, 31 families including 45 children have been provided safe affordable housing in the Lower Mainland operating under a non-profit funding model. We have the utmost respect for a track record such as this, and we at VictorEric are proud donate our time today.
Being a non-profit however means Habitat for Humanity of Greater Vancouver is always in need of donations, support, partner organizations and volunteers.
