Giving Tuesday Waterloo Region


Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region

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 for hard-working, low-income families. 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, HFHWR partners with families who are willing volunteer 250 hours, per adult, of "sweat equity," and will repay a zero-down payment, interest-free mortgage.

This GivingTuesday season, our dedication ceremony will welcome 6 families to their new homes! Because 100% of our administrative costs are covered by our ReStores, every dollar of every donation you make will go directly towards providing more hard-working families the ability to own a home.
