Habitat for Humanity Central North Island has broken ground on the ‘Hands on for Habitat’ project in Ngāruawāhia, which aims to raise funds for Habitat’s home repair programme.
The project involves the build of a new high-quality home in the River Terraces development in Ngāruawāhia, to be auctioned off once complete.
Major sponsors of the project include Anthem Homes, Mitre 10 Mega Hamilton and Lodge Real Estate, alongside many other local sponsors.
These sponsors’ supply chain, expertise and partnerships will be used to keep building costs down and provide maximum return to the Habitat home repair programme.
The programme helps get low-income homeowners back on track by carrying out critical repairs such as insulation, heating, weatherproofing, improving accessibility or replacing a bathroom or kitchen.
