Project: Homewood Ave – Simcoe (Norfolk County)

Type: Detached Single Family Home Improvement

Start Date: 2019

End date: 2020

About the Project:

The 26-year-old bungalow would require significant renovations, updated electrical, plumbing, and insulation.

“We are very excited about this partnership and the opportunities it will provide for families in our community. I want to acknowledge Haldimand & Norfolk Women’s Services Board of Directors for their forward thinking and recognition of the future benefits to both organizations,”

– Jane Scheel, executive director of Haldimand & Norfolk Women’s Services

“This is a terrific example of community collaboration and thinking outside the box. It also carries personal meaning for me. I’m acutely aware of the impact violence can have on children within the home and beyond the front door. Any occasion to prevent family violence or support healing from trauma is a path I am willing to explore.”

– Dan Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario Brant-Norfolk Chapter
