Habitat for Humanity - Huronia
Since 1997, we have provided permanent homeownership solutions to hardworking, deserving families in Simcoe County. Families who have benefitted from a Habitat Home have experienced better health and financial security, their children get better grades in school and the local economy benefits from tax dollars and local spending.
Habitat families purchase their home at Market Value with a no interest mortgage after volunteering at least 500 hours to help build the house.
Our two ReStores divert more than 350 tons of waste from local landfills every year and provide quality home improvement products and furniture to local shoppers.
Our newest family of four took possession of their new Habitat for Humanity Home on Berwick Crescent in Angus September 29th.. To prepare for the house-warming celebration, Maya Kovachev, who moved to Canada with her husband Georgi about seven years ago from Bulgaria, baked a fresh batch of egg bread. “It’s a tradition in our culture,” she said. “You make it for the first time you come to someone’s house.” The loaf, which is baked with honey and salt, is symbolic for the ups and downs life will bring their way. For now, all the family can think about is how much better life will be in their new setting, especially for their young twin daughters, who now have a big backyard all to themselves. “It’s amazing, it’s more than we could dream for", she said, adding they will begin moving in tomorrow morning.

• If you have verifiable, steady work/family income
We would like to hear from you!
Families with children are our priority.
Habitat works on the idea of “giving a hand up, not a hand out” while helping
to break the cycle of poverty.
