I heard an amazing statistic on CBC’s Metro Morning today. Every child that has grown up in a Habitat for Humanity home in Toronto has graduated from high school and gone on to post-secondary education. Habitat for Humanity Hamilton CEO Bob McConkey believes the statistics would be similar here.
“Where you lay your head down at night matters” said this morning’s guest, Curtis Hector, who grew up in a H4H home and who is now a student at York University. He spoke eloquently about his personal experience and the safety and security his home, and eventually his neighbourhood and the feeling of community provided.
We’re looking forward to sharing the story of Habitat for Humanity, now completing eight townhomes in the Keith neighbourhood, in our upcoming annual report.
