Home Ownership Alternatives established the June Callwood Home Ownership Fund to help families become home owners by reducing the level of income and the amount of personal down payment needed to buy a home.

June Callwood was a founding member of Home Ownership Alternatives. She was a journalist, author and social activist, well known as “Canada’s Conscience” and she considered herself a servant to society. June’s activism spanned many just causes, from fighting poverty and illness to supporting women and children in crisis. Among her many accomplishments, June founded Digger House, a shelter for homeless youth; Nellie’s, a shelter for women in crisis; Jessie’s Centre for Teenagers and the Casey House hospice, named in memory of her son. Casey House was the first hospice in the world to provide care for people with HIV/AIDS.

At the heart of what June Callwood believed was that people can thrive when given an opportunity. She helped start Home Ownership Alternatives and we are proud to have created the June Callwood Home Ownership Fund to ensure that her legacy lives on through this investment in you.
