Decent shelter is something we all need to thrive
Why Habitat homeownership? If you're living in overcrowded or unsafe housing, have a job or income but can't afford your rent, and are ready for the responsibilities of homeownership, you may qualify for Habitat's affordable homeownership. Our Sierra Valley neighborhood is close to downtown and convenient to shopping and schools, and we're building duplexes, quad unit town homes, and single family homes. Sierra Valley is located on Valency Drive, west of Hwy 287, on the south side of Hwy 402.
