Habitat for Humanity Manitoba, Dauphin Chapter has officially started construction of its second home.

The kickoff to the project came at a fund-raising barbecue at Fusion Credt Union, last week.

“This committee has worked hard and stayed together through challenging times. I am proud of the hard work of each member of our group and we look forward to the successful completion of this build,” said Rodney Juba, chair of the Dauphin chapter.

Located on Seventh Avenue North East, the house will become the home of Chantel and her three children, ages 16, 12 and 10.

The barbecue included the presentation of support for the project from the Thomas Sill Foundation in the amount of $10,000 and the local Fusion Credit Union branch in the form of a cheque for $7,500, as well as the proceeds from the barbecue.

Those participating also had an opportunity to sign a 2x4 that will be placed in the home as a legacy of the community’s support.
