The Need for Affordable Housing
There is an urgent need for affordable housing around the world, nationally, and right at home in Camrose.
Globally: 1.6 billion people need adequate shelter
Nationally: 1.5 million Canadian households live in core housing need. This represents 13% of all Canadians.
Locally: 800 Camrose families live below the poverty line. This is the equivalent of one family on every block. At least 500 children in Camrose live in poverty, which is equal to the enrolment of one of the city’s largest schools.
Habitat for Humanity Camrose helps families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.
