Today more than 3.2 million Canadians struggle to get by without a safe, decent and affordable place to live. Internationally, about 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing. Join us in our mission to eradicate this housing crisis by becoming involved with one of our programs.
We’re not just helping families in need purchase an affordable house, because they’re also getting a home. Home ownership is about more than just building equity, as it can instill a family with a renewed sense of confidence and pride. Children have become happier and more outgoing, leading to improved grades and better health. Parents have used their newly discovered sense of accomplishment to return to school, learn a new trade, or upgrade their job skills. The impact is immediate; the effects everlasting.
Many partner families are so moved and thankful for the opportunity to better their lives that they continue to contribute to their communities by helping others break free of the cycle of poverty. From becoming a partner family to the day they pay off their mortgage, Habitat partner families are given the support and guidance they need to ensure they succeed.
By supporting Habitat for Humanity Kamloops you are not just providing for the bricks and mortar to build a house, you’re giving families the hand up they need to build a better life.
At Habitat for Humanity Kamloops, we know that home ownership plays a critical role in breaking the cycle of poverty.
