Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Canada are working with low-income families by building safe, decent homes that we then sell to them at mortgage payments they can afford.
Our 50,000 volunteers are community-minded people who understand that many families are struggling, and they are doing something about it.
Last year, Habitat for Humanity helped over 225 more families afford their own home, end their dependency on social housing subsidies and become taxpayers who contribute between $1,500 and $3,000 each year in property taxes, while still having money left over to pay for nutritious food, schooling and healthier living.
We want to offer our hand up, not a handout solutions to more families but we need your support in ensuring that the money government already directs to housing is invested in Habitat for Humanity’s affordable home ownership solutions.
On Thursday, Nov. 22, National Housing Day, we invite you to make a show of support for Habitat for Humanity and our partner families through a statement or by getting involved with your local affiliate.
To get involved with Habitat for Humanity Boundary, call 250-442-2634.
