In 1989 Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region partnered with its first of over 140 families to complete a home renovation in Kitchener, Ontario.
“Homeownership was the best thing that has ever happened to us. I want to help others experience the joy we have.”
Our First Renovation
The first ever Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region build project was a home renovation on 14 Devon Street in Kitchener, Ontario.
In 1989, the first Habitat family, the Franks, moved into their spacious four-bedroom, two-story detached home. Built with the help of 89 volunteers and many donors, the family of six was given the opportunity for a better life.
By becoming a volunteer or donor with Habitat Waterloo Region, you become a part of a story just like this.
