Lynn Laird was an Early Childhood Educator and working at Thomas’ House, an emergency receiving home for children who come into foster care without immediate placements when she became a HeadStart home owner. Originally from Saskatoon, Lynn relocated to Regina 27 years prior.

While raising her son Dawson, Lynn struggled to find a home they could afford on a single income. Being a single parent comes with many challenges, many of them financial. 

Condo life better suited Lynn’s family and lifestyle, and she had always dreamed of owning a condo but thought that it was out of her reach. The increase in housing prices in Regina at the time meant that many homes are now priced out of Lynn’s range.

A friend told Lynn about HeadStart on a Home and signed her up for an information session by NewRock Development’s. The programs, resources and information provided by HeadStart on a Home and NewRock Developments allowed Lynn the opportunity to get into her own home – and even have input on appliances and finishes.

As a single parent, Lynn enjoyed the lower stress of condo living – and loved her walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom, and the Rosemont area and access to independent businesses within the community. Lynn said this is a life-changing event for her as well as her son.
