Habitat for Humanity Kamloops

our history

Habitat for Humanity began in 1968 because Linda and Millard Fuller of Americus, Georgia, U.S. had a passion to provide access to safe and decent housing for everyone and to have people, from all walks of life, come together to make this vision come true.  In 1984, former United States President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn took part in their first ever Habitat build and continue to do so to this day.

To date, Habitat has built 800,000 houses in over 100 countries around the world, providing more than 4 million people with safe, decent, and affordable shelter.

Habitat for Humanity – Kamloops

Habitat for Humanity Kamloops (HFHK) a Habitat for Humanity Canada affiliate, was established in 2000. To date, safe, decent, affordable housing has been provided for 10 families, and we’re not stopping! Our homes are funded by the generous contributions of services, supplies, and equipment from local businesses in the construction industry and by individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorships.

Helping Families and Communities

We believe that affordable home ownership provides strength, stability and self-reliance thus helping families break the cycle of poverty. After a careful selection process, Habitat for Humanity provides partner families with a chance at home ownership. No down payment is required, our Habitat mortgage is interest free, and families are required to pay 30% of their wages towards their mortgage. Families must also commit to 500 ‘sweat equity” hours towards the building of their home.

our story

Do you remember what it was like growing up? Having a warm, welcoming home that always felt safe? A backyard to play in? Food in the fridge? At the time, you likely didn’t think about those things. No one could blame you for taking them for granted. Carefree; that’s how growing up should be. But life is not carefree for children of the 1.5 million Canadian families in need of safe, decent and affordable shelter. Many Canadian families live month to month, making it nearly impossible to get ahead. They’re forced to decide between heat and rent – a choice no family should ever have to make. One in seven Canadian children live in poverty; one of the fastest growing segments of our population. Habitat for Humanity Kamloops is committed to helping low-income families caught in the vicious cycle of poverty. Every Canadian family deserves a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. Habitat for Humanity Kamloops’ goal is to make that dream a reality.
