Arcus Legal congratulates the Wiggins family on their new home. Chelcie and Alvero Wiggins (far right) and their four young children were selected by non-profit organization A Home for Everyone to receive donations and support in acquiring a home. Alvero is an active community member in the North End of Halifax, known for his work with Hope Blooms and the LOVE Nova Scotia youth centre. He now lives with kidney disease and spends 9-10 hours a day on dialysis while awaiting a kidney transplant. Sarah MacLaren (far left), who worked with Alvero at ‘LOVE Nova Scotia’, played a big part in this project. Erin O’Brien Edmonds (second from left) provided pro bono legal services and donated the costs of the property closing.
