The SHDM Calls on Habitat for Humanity Québec to Renovate a Social Housing Building
The Société d'habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM) announced today the sale of its property located at 1685, 1687, 1689, 1691 and 1693, avenue de l'Église, in the Sud-Ouest Borough, to the Habitat for Humanity Québec charitable organization.
In the summer of 2019, the SHDM launched a public call for proposals to community organizations in order to sell the vacant building on avenue de l'Église. The objective was to preserve the affordable housing mission of this 3-storey building, particularly since such housing is in short supply in Montreal.
"The SHDM is delighted with this new partnership with Habitat for Humanity Québec. This sale will become an inspiring project that will provide five families with reasonable access to home ownership," stated Nancy Shoiry, Managing Director of the SHDM.
Habitat for Humanity Québec's mission is to mobilize volunteers and donors in order to build affordable properties and promote the purchase of a home as a means of ending the cycle of poverty," explained Clévis Cabrera of Habitat for Humanity Québec. “The acquisition of the building owned by the SHDM will enable us to pursue this mission by offering low-income Québec families genuine access to home ownership."
