A Habitat home is a strong foundation for a family, an opportunity on which they can build a better life.
Do you remember what it was like growing up? Walking through the front door of a home that always felt safe? Having a warm bed to sleep in? A backyard to play?
1 in 7 households do not have a decent and affordable place to call home in Canada. Many families right here in our community are living month to month, finding it nearly impossible to get ahead. They are forced to decide between paying rent and having food in the fridge– a choice no family should ever have to make.
At Habitat, we believe that strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities.
Availability of affordable housing plays an integral part in the overall wellbeing of a community. It is a foundation where families can become healthier and happier. Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger development of children and equip parents with the financial flexibility to make forward-looking choices. In decent housing, the walls are strong, the roof is secure and the families inside can focus on creating brighter, more prosperous futures.
Through shelter, we empower.
By supporting Habitat, you are providing so much more than the bricks and mortar to build a home, you’re giving families in our community the opportunity to build a better life. You can take pride in knowing that your donation to Habitat goes directly into homebuilding efforts, funding the construction of more safe, decent and affordable housing.
