Cranbrook Habitat for Humanity family partner announced
On recommendation of the Cranbrook Project Family Partner selection committee, The Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity West Kootenay has approved the Berry family as the successful applicants for the first Habitat for Humanity home to be built in Cranbrook.
The selection committee, comprised of Jill Johnston, Gord Harder and Stu Deeks, reviewed applications, interviewed and visited with five families in the past three months.
“It was a thorough and rigorous process,” commented Jill Johnston. “The three of us approached the task from divergent points of view and we all agreed on the final recommendation. We believe the application process resulted in the selection of the best Family Partner for this project. The family were elated when we shared the news of the Board’s approval.”
Work on the Slaterville neighbourhood lot that was donated by the City of Cranbrook, began with Darrell Bohmer, owner of AJC Construction, doing some site preparation over the April 5th weekend. Actual excavation and building will start in the near future according to Project Leader Gord Johnston.
