About, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo

Since 1988 Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region brings communities together to help families build strength, stability, and independence through affordable homeownership.

Building Homes & Better Futures

Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region is a charitable organization working toward a world where everyone has a decent place to live. In Waterloo Region, 1 in 4 households lacks a decent, affordable place to live making them at risk of falling into a cycle of poverty. Our model of affordable homeownership bridges a gap for lower-income, working families by providing them with the opportunity to purchase their own Habitat home.
