There's nothing like a good party. Especially when you know that proceeds are benefitting hard-working families right in your neighbourhood. From our classic golf tournament to new and innovative fêtes, we always have something going on in Waterloo Region that's worth more than just pencilling it in your calendar.
21st Anniversary Golf Tournament: June 7, 2018
In 2017, we celebrated 20 years of golf and raised $103,000 - that's quite a legacy! You are carrying on this legacy in 2018, by supporting our 21st annual golf tournament. With your support, we will help 6 more local families achieve stability through homeownership. Our tournament sells out every year, so register today or check out our sponsorship packages.
Women Build Week: 2018 TBA
We're building on last year's success and hosting a full Women Build Week. Stay tuned as we will be announcing the 2018 week! Come for a day or the whole week, and feel energized and empowered as you play a role in fulfilling someone’s dream of homeownership. You don’t need to have any building skills, but you won’t believe how quickly you will learn them. Everyone is welcome, so bring your sister, mother or girlfriends. Anyone can help build homes, build hope and build communities.
Have your own safety gear? Excellent! Just make sure what you have is: CSA approved, green patch work boots and Class E, Type II hard hat. If you require the gear - we have you covered for the day of your build, no problem. Just bring yourself.
Celebrate Homeownership: 2017 Dedication
You could literally feel the bubbling hope, barely contained excitement, and unbridled joy bursting forth on Kehl Street! 6 of our partner families have been counting down the months, weeks, and days to this very moment. The moment they cross the threshold of their new home once and for all - as owners. The day they finally get to eat, play, sleep - and make beautiful cherished memories - right in their very own homes! Thank you for helping these families have their dream. On October 19th, we celebrated your impact, and our families' achievements. Check out the pics capturing our families celebrating their "hand up" and your amazing impact!
Host your own!
Are you passionate about Waterloo Region? Do you want to continue to see your community grow and grow to be the place you are most proud to call home?

Anyone can do it: religious groups, workplaces, schools, sports teams, families and social circles! 100% of the funds you raise will go directly to our build program and provide families in your neighbourhood hand up, not a hand out. We may not live next door, but we are all neighbours!
