Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario is excited to announce the completion of homes for the Robitaille and Solomon families with the key ceremony at 16 and 18 Forbes Street held on Friday March 30th.

“People in our community, and all over the world, partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families”, said Brian Elliot, CEO Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario, “The Robitaille and Solomon families have wholeheartedly embraced our homeownership program and not only have become Habitat families, but have become part of our Habitat family. We wish them success and happiness in their new homes.”

The Robitaille family, Juan Jose, Michelle, their daughter Juliette, three years old, and their son Joseph Mitchel have been living in a townhouse with Michelle's mother and sisters where the four of them share one bedroom. Michelle works from home in the afternoons and Juan Jose has almost completed school with Boreal ESL (English Lessons). He attends school in the mornings so Michelle and Juan are able to share taking care of their children through the day. As a family, they love going to the park and watching movies, but most important for the family is just spending time together.

Genworth Canada provided support through their annual Meaning of Home contest which encourages grade 4, 5 and 6 students to write an essay or poem about what home means to them. In this national contest, London student John Latosinsky won first prize allowing him to allocate $50,000 to the Habitat(s) of his choice. John chose to honour Habitat Heartland with $25,000 and to give the other $25,000 to a Habitat Indigenous Build program.

“It’s extremely rewarding to see the record number of students from coast to coast who participated in our 10th Anniversary of the Meaning of Home contest. We are proud of this campaign which has helped to increase awareness about the need for affordable homeownership in Canada”, said Stuart Levings, President and CEO, Genworth Canada.

The Solomon family has received support from Scotiabank. Three year old Mohammad Solomon said, “My dad took us to see a new building, he said it was a house being built by Habitat for Humanity. My dad said that Habitat for Humanity and their helpers and our family will work together to build a house for our family. My dad said the day they told him this was one of his happiest days.”
