Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region (HFHWR) builds safe, affordable and decent homes, for hard-working, low-income families in need. Since we do not receive any government funding, we strive to keep costs low by using modest designs, donated materials, volunteer labour, and our ReStore revenue to cover 100% of all administrative costs.
As of 2006, we have been building multi-dwelling condominium complexes in order to house more families on the sparse and costly land available in the region. We ensure all homes are built to code by employing a Construction Project Manager who oversees each volunteer labourer. We marked our 25th anniversary by building over 100 safe homes and partnering with over 100 families through the offer of homeownership.
Check out our past builds to see the impact HFHWR has had in this community building homes, hope and communities.
