Building Dreams: How Habitat for Humanity & Canbury Homes are Delivering Affordable Housing and Changing Lives in Maine

Updated: Mar 1

At Canbury Homes, we are incredibly proud to announce our partnership with Habitat for Humanity to deliver affordable housing to residents in our Southern Maine community. Inspired by the recent heartwarming story of the Labelle family in Sanford, who received a new home through Habitat for Humanity, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of families in need of safe and stable housing.

The recent home dedication ceremony for Ashley Labelle and her two children truly encapsulates the joy and hope that comes with the gift of homeownership. With three bedrooms and one bathroom, the new home symbolizes a fresh start and a place to call their own. Ashley expressed her excitement at the opportunity to paint, decorate, and truly make the house their own, reflecting the pride and sense of ownership that comes with having a home.


The challenges of building affordable homes, even modular ones, are not lost on us. Amy Nucci, the executive director of Habitat for Humanity York County, highlighted the importance of partnerships with organizations like Canbury Homes in making affordable housing a reality. By working together with the community, government entities, and dedicated volunteers, we can overcome obstacles such as rising construction costs and limited land availability to provide families with the homes they deserve.


Volunteers play a crucial role in the Habitat for Humanity homeownership program, dedicating their time and skills to help build homes for families in need. Their commitment and passion were evident at the home dedication ceremony, where tears of joy were shed in celebration of the Labelle family's new beginning. As volunteer Felicia Baresel aptly put it, "Kids need a good home, and a lot of single parents can't do it." Through partnerships and collaborative efforts, we can give children the stability and security they need to thrive.


For Ashley Labelle, homeownership represents more than just a roof over her head—it is a pathway to financial independence and security. With a stable home environment, she now has the opportunity to provide her children with a bright future and a place to call home. This story is a testament to the transformative power of affordable housing and the positive impact it can have on families and communities.


At Canbury Homes, we are honored to be a part of this meaningful partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Together, we are dedicated to building a better future for families in Southern Maine, one home at a time. Join us in supporting affordable housing initiatives and making a difference in the lives of those in need.
