Jimmy Carter Work Project | July 9 - 14th, 2017



Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region is proud to be a part of Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project (July 9 - 14th) – Habitat for Humanity Canada’s biggest build project ever – to help build 150 homes with 150 families for Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.

The Carter Work Project will take place in every province and territory, and over 40 communities including Kehl St. and Wellesley builds, with former U.S. President and Mrs. Carter focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta, and in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Habitat Waterloo Region is partnering with Habitat for Humanity Canada, Habitat for Humanity International and the Carters to help bring this project to Canada by committing to build homes to help reach the goal of 150 homes. Thousands of volunteers will be helping to build alongside future Habitat homeowners right across the country, and HabitatWR is excited to be a part of this Canada-wide project to bring affordable home ownership to more families in need.
