Our Impact

About, Habitat for Humanity Waterloo

For the past 30 years Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region has been able to help more than 143 families locally build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.

The Benefits Are Real

Affordable homeownership enables families to build a foundation for a better future by fostering the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. This has a life-changing impact on their lives. Habitat homeowners report being happier, healthier and more financially secure after moving into their home. Through reduced reliance on social housing and food banks, better education and employment outcomes, and improved health, every Habitat home built benefits the local community.
