To assist low income working families to achieve home ownership by mobilizing local communities, volunteers, materials, and financial resources through supportive, wide-ranging partnerships

Target Population

Working families who cannot afford to purchase their own homes

Highlight of Programs / Services Offered

  • The Family Selection Committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners with Habitat, and their ability to repay the loan.
  • Habitat families contribute 500 hours of time to building their home as well as other homes, which is used as “sweat equity,” and agree to purchase their home through an interest-free mortgage.
  • ReStore accepts donations of quality new and used building materials, furniture, appliances and other goods from individuals and businesses and sells them. All proceeds go toward home building in Newfoundland and Labrador.
