Did you know?
  • The Habitat for Humanity model is based on a partnership between the family, the community, volunteers, the private sector and, at times, with modest one-time contributions from different orders of governments.
  • In many cases, Habitat works with local skills and apprentice programs. For example, our local chapter partnered with students from North Island College on our most recent Campbell River build.
  • Habitat families work alongside volunteers to help build their homes and pay an affordable, no-interest mortgage geared to the family’s income level.
  • The average Habitat home generates $175,000 of benefits to society.
  • Habitat’s affordable home ownership program has created a social return on investment of $500 million over the last 30 years.
