Homeownership is out of reach for many families because a down payment is often too difficult to save for, and interest charges make a mortgage more than many can afford.

That's where we come in! Established in 1988, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region (HFHWR) is a non-profit housing organization working to break the cycle of poverty by building simple, decent and affordable homes with local families in need. This is all due to the love and support of volunteers and community partners. 

Focused on providing a hand up and not a hand out, Habitat Waterloo Region partners with families who are willing to volunteer 250 hours, per adult, of "sweat equity," and will repay an interest-free mortgage.

ReStore are non-profit home improvement stores and donation centres that sell new and gently used cabinetry, furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances to the public at a fraction of the retail price...up to 80% off! Our ReStore covers 100% of HFHWR's administrative costs so that all donated dollars go directly to our home building program.
