Since 2014, the local Knights of Columbus have donated $7000 to Habitat Yorkton to help support new builds in the community. The Knights of Columbus Council #2031 have had many members contributing countless number of volunteer hours in the various home builds in Yorkton.

Habitat Yorkton Chapter’s eighth home is being constructed on Darlington Street East. Once completed this fall, it will be home to Maranda Belcourt and her children. Maranda will purchase the home at fair-market value, with a zero down payment, interest free mortgage set at 25 per cent of her gross annual income. She has also contributed 500 volunteer hours to building her home and is excited to purchase her new home.

“My girls are absolutely thrilled that we will now have the space to have sleepovers, family and guests. I am happy to have room for my parents to stay with us when they visit,” said Belcourt. “Being given this opportunity to own my own home, in the community I love is breathtaking.”
