we build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter

With the help of volunteers, donors, and Habitat homeowners, we build and rehabilitate decent and affordable homes, from single-family houses to multi-unit developments. We don’t give away free homes – the families who partner with us pay an affordable mortgage geared to their income and volunteer at least 500 ‘sweat-equity’ hours with us.

We’re a regional affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada. We serve Peterborough City, Peterborough County, City of Kawartha Lakes, and Haliburton Highlands area.

Our model of affordable homeownership bridges a gap for low-income, working families, by providing them with the opportunity to purchase their own home.

Since 2002, we’ve helped 37 families into affordable homeownership in the Peterborough & Kawartha Region.
