Habitat For Humanity
A very well known program, Habitat for Humanity carries a chapter in Southern Alberta, I’ve been lucky enough to provide some consultation on the social media/web development front, as well as donate prints from my photography www.codyjames.ca which were used to raised funds via auction.
A print I donated to Habitat for Humanity to put in auction.

Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta is a non-profit organization working toward a world where everyone has a safe, affordable place to live. Our mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Their home ownership model empowers families by providing a hand-up, not a hand-out. Through volunteer labour and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates safe, affordable houses alongside partner families. Habitat homes are sold to partner families with no down-payment, no-interest mortgages. The monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving fund, which is used to build more homes for more families.
Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta was established in 1990 and consists of Chapters from Calgary, Medicine Hat, Brooks District, Foothills and Mountain View County. To date, we have served more than 250 families.
