Several Families in Canton have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. Thanks to the hard work of BGC Advantage and various community partners, several well-deserving families had the chance to move into their new homes during a “Home for the Holidays” event. The families received holiday gift baskets filled with household supplies to help with their move and new beginnings.
“Today, we not only celebrate the gift of giving and the spirit of Christmas, we are witnessing the positive and necessary transformation of several lives. We are beyond pleased to welcome these beautiful families into their brand-new home just before the holiday. This massive effort symbolizes a unified effort among partners and a wonderful gift to the people of Canton,” said Holly Knight, Chief Executive Officer of BGC Advantage.
Their new units are a part of the Woodcreek Homes Community which is an affordable development nestled in a wooded area with 60 units, composed of 36 newly constructed homes and 24 rehabilitated homes, that will be available to residents for homeownership. The development will be constructed utilizing sustainability technology and will have a silver Leed Status upon completion. The project will include family-oriented site amenities such as a volleyball court, playground, club house, and exterior security. The project unit amenities include washers and dryers, ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living area, brick veneer, architectural shingles, and energy efficient windows.
The development is made possible through a partnership with BCG Advantage, Mississippi Regional Housing Authority VI, and Central Mississippi Housing and Development Corporation (CMHDC).
