Highlight of Programs / Services Offered:
- Using volunteer labour and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates home with the help of volunteers and future homeowners. Homes are sold to partner families for no profit and financed through, affordable, no-interest mortgages.

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.
