WE ARE SEEKING FAMILIES TO APPLY FOR HOME OWNERSHIP
We would ask that all applicants have a passion and desire to own their own home. We, in turn can offer the pride of home ownership and the ability to create a future for you and your family.
• If you have lived in Simcoe County for 2 years
• If your current housing is inadequate or substandard
• 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.
Habitat for Humanity is more than building! Habitat is a people-to-people organization forming partnerships with community leaders, builders, suppliers, volunteers and Family Partners; and together, providing simple, adequate and affordable housing to low income families. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families.
Habitat for Humanity Huronia seeks to provide the pride and responsibility of home ownership to low income families, and to work towards eliminating substandard housing one house at a time.
The ReStore is a retail outlet that sells recycled and new building materials, hardware, and appliances to the public at bargain prices. New material has been donation by our business partners. Profits from sales are used to build more homes for low income family partners.
An innovative response to the landfill crisis.
