Governance

Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region (HFHWR) was founded by a group of passionate volunteers in 1988. To ensure that this passion remains at the heart of our mission, we need motivated and disciplined leadership. As a result, we are looking for individuals who are passionate about helping low-income, hard-working families achieve homeownership who wish to become members of our organization. This is an excellent opportunity to have voice concerning HFHWR's future direction, and to impact this community in a meaningful way.
