HAMILTON, ON (March 27, 2023) Habitat for Humanity Hamilton is proud to announce a very generous significant gift from New Horizon Development Group. The local developer will construct two semi-detached homes on a lot previously declared surplus by the City of Hamilton, at no cost to Habitat for Humanity Hamilton. This donation will make a transformational impact for two families by directly addressing their need for affordable housing.

The two homes will provide brand-new, safe, and affordable housing for two families in need, and the donation by New Horizon Development Group will ensure that Habitat for Humanity Hamilton can continue to help families achieve their dream of homeownership.

“We are extremely grateful to New Horizon Development Group for this generous gift,” said Sean Ferris, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Hamilton. “This incredible donation shows New Horizon’s leadership and genuine commitment to bettering the community. These homes are going to change the lives of two families who dream of having a home of their own. It’s through strong partnerships like this that communities can make a real difference in addressing the affordable housing crisis.”

Jeff Paikin, President of New Horizon Development Group, said “It is our pleasure to give back to the community by partnering with Habitat for Humanity Hamilton. We care deeply about addressing the affordable housing crisis in the GTHA, and this donation is one way we can help continue to make a difference. We believe that everyone deserves a safe, decent place to call home, and we are proud to support Habitat’s mission in our community.”

This donation comes at a critical time for Habitat for Humanity Hamilton, as the need for affordable housing continues to grow. With support from partners like New Horizon Development Group, Habitat Hamilton is committed to providing a hand-up to families in need. Construction of this housing project will commence this spring and the homes are anticipated to be move-in ready by the end of 2023.
