Rady Faculty of Health Sciences partners with Habitat to help build hope

Staff and students help build home in the inner city

A Winnipeg mom and her two sons will soon experience home ownership thanks to a continued partnership between the University of Manitoba’s Rady Faculty of Health Sciences and Habitat for Humanity Manitoba.

The nine-day build project kicks off at 10:00 a.m. on June 20 on the build-site located at 299 Patrick Street.

This isn’t a first for the Rady Faculty. To date the community of health educators, researchers and learners in the health sciences faculty have helped build two homes. In 2013 and 2014 the Bannatyne Campus staff parking lot was transformed into a construction site, each home was built at the inner-city campus and then relocated to its permanent site.
