It's simple, really: Montreal needs more affordable housing. I am frustrated when I see expensive condo after expensive condo being built on what seems like every street corner. People of my generation, and many others, struggle to find affordable homes. Some will never be able to afford a house.

Habitat for Humanity Canada works to redress this problem. The organization has provided homes for 1,800 families since its foundation in 1985. But we could do so much more as a society. An
article in the Toronto Star estimates that there are "1.6 million households considered in 'core housing need' — meaning they spend more than one-third of their before-tax income on housing that may be substandard or doesn’t meet their needs." 

This is why I am raising money for this year's Montreal building project. I would be extremely grateful if you could help me reach my goal of $500, so I can participate in a day of construction in June 2018. Thank you very much!

In solidarity,
Karen
