About Habitat for Humanity® Huronia

habitat for humanity is more than building!

We bring communities together to help families build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. Every Habitat home and community we build alongside our volunteers, future Habitat homeowners and partners changes the lives of parents and children. 

Our homeownership model plays an important role in helping families create a foundation for a life with more choices and opportunities. By mobilizing communities, keeping housing affordable, and giving families a hand up in a time of need, we are helping build a more inclusive, better community for everyone.

  • checkmarkBuilding Partnerships We work by organizing volunteers and obtaining donations of money and materials so that we can build houses in partnership with people in need of simple, decent, and affordable homes.
  • checkmarkPromoting Community Involvement The homes are sold to our Habitat homeowners, usually working low income families, at cost. The families pay for their homes in two ways: they invest Sweat Equity, which is voluntary work hours in support of the organization and they make monthly payments on a long-term, no-interest mortgage.
  • checkmarkBenefiting Future Families The mortgage monies are then contributed back into our working funds, which are used to build more houses with more families. Most donors appreciate knowing that their funds will recycle to benefit more than one family.
