There is a house that was built in the 1940s or 50s sitting in the parking lot of Northumberland County Movers on Highway 28, just north of Port Hope. It used to be at 311 University Avenue, across from the NAPA outlet or the old Home Hardware.
It has an interesting story. Meaghan Macdonald, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Northumberland, can tell it.
The house is older and it needs some TLC.
There is a family waiting to get started.
This family represents only one of many people who are anxious to find affordable housing. There are many in the community in need of a place to live and the pandemic has amplified the situation. Macdonald explains.
If nothing else, the community is responding.
