Governance

Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region (HabitatWR) was founded by a group of passionate volunteers in 1988. To ensure that this passion remains at the heart of our mission, we need motivated and disciplined leadership. As a result, we are looking for individuals who are passionate about empowering families through homeownership, and wish to become members of our organization. This is an excellent opportunity to have voice concerning HabitatWR's future direction, and to impact this community in a meaningful way.
