Habitat for Humanity NL: building homes. building hope.


thegreenrock.ca CCNL Green Team loves a story of good, and they found one at Habitat for Humanity NL on Robin Hood Bay Road in St. John’s.  The main point of the organization is to build homes with families who need homes, and the method is through community involvement.  The Restore retail outlet sells donated goods – appliances, furniture, building materials and more, and funds raised support builds.  It’s all good.

Habitat for Humanity has helped around 50 families find affordable home ownership in this province over the past 20 years.  Now the organization is aiming to help fifty in five years.  Gail Ryan, Habitat’s Executive Director tells a little about the organization and how and why it does what it does. It’s a thread that strengthens our community.  Directed by David Maher, Tamara Segura behind the camera, Chris Ball doing audio, and editied by Jeff Smyth.

in July and August 2014 thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon.  Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.

thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team 2014 was sponsored by Junior Forest Wardens NL.  (thank you!)
