Jessica Francis can’t believe how much her quality of life has improved since she moved into her house on the Abegweit First Nation reserve in Scotchfort.
She has lived there since November of 2021 with her partner Riley and their three-year-old daughter Claire.
“Now I live a life that I didn’t think was possible thanks to our new home,” she says. “It gives me a sense of community surrounded by family and friends that was lacking before.”
She was living in an apartment, paying high rent and trying to navigate the financial woes that came along with it.
“Rent was $1,400 for the month. That was without electricity, without Internet. I had to pay for all those separately. It was pretty harsh.”
