Habitat For Humanity Greater Vancouver

Vancouver, BC

Mission

Habitat for Humanity's mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.

Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver is one of 56 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Canada and among more than 3000 affiliates around the world.

Habitat for Humanity is an inclusive, non-profit, non-government organization. Through volunteer labour and donations of money and materials, Habitat works with families in need to build safe, decent and affordable housing.

Families invest 500 hours of their own labour, what we refer to as sweat equity, into building their own houses and those of other families.

Habitat Families enter the home with no down-payment requirement and their monthly housing payments are capped at 30% of their household income.  These monthly payments are then held by Habitat for each family, for them to eventually use as a cash down payment on a market home in the future.

We build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable shelter.

A few words 

Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver relies on the generous support of our community in many ways. We are able to build more homes through the direct donation of money, labour, materials and services to our projects, or through the donation of product to fill our social enterprise ReStore locations.

 Equally important are partnerships with community organizations, groups and events, where additional funds are raised which have an immediate impact on the build project progression while also generating more awareness for our valuable work.  Through this awareness, all other areas of support also thrive. 

We welcome you to support our work through Art for Humans and are grateful to the artists for their generosity. 

Should you wish to be involved in the physical building of the homes either as an individual volunteer or through a Habitat Team Build, please be sure to check out our website and learn how to sign up. www.habitatgv.ca
