Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region has been building affordable housing for lower income families since 1988. Today, pictured above in the left photo (left to right) Janine Armstrong Director of Community Outreach, Philip Mills CEO, Bil Ioannidis Director of Construction Services, Regional Chair Karen Redman, and Cambridge Mayor Kathryn McGarry are excited to announce the future build of a brand-new affordable housing community for families in Cambridge. Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region, plans to redevelop the vacant site located on Shantz Hill. The plans involve roughly 20 newly constructed stacked townhouses for working families who would not otherwise get into traditional homeownership. Lack of affordable housing is not unique to our region but we see it every day with the unpredictable rent increases, and the lack of access to affordable financing. That is why Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region is excited to partner with working, lower income families here in Cambridge–to give them a hand up, to build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.
Behind the scenes of every build are generous donors that give time, funds, and materials. Did you know over 25 local donors gave gifts of material and labour to our build program last year? Without such support, we cannot extend the offer of homeownership to families in need.

With the help and hard work of our donors, volunteers, and staff, more families have affordable places to live, spaces where they can live healthier, gather together, build memories and plan for a brighter future.
Your financial support, your voice and your time will help bring strength, stability and independence to families in need of a decent place to live.Donate Today
