Smart Investment


HGTV star and home renovation expert Scott McGillivray has built his business on smart investing – and he can tell you supporting Habitat for Humanity is a smart investment in helping the community. Learn more about how you can be a smart investor in your community below.

Groundbreakers... Since 1988.

We don’t just break ground on our build sites, we break ground when we empower local families through homeownership. We break ground by believing and living the belief that everyone deserves a place to call home. We create communities where children can thrive and feel secure, and in turn be part of a give back mentality that we believe is better for everyone. We provide measurable impact. We make smart investments.

Are you a groundbreaker?  Here are a few ways in which you can invest in your community:

Give your time, materials or even services to our build program.  We not only need generous volunteers, but also building materials and professional services to build more homes.

We build all year-round and are always looking for willing people to come and build with us.  We offer training, and the promise that you’ll do something significant to the whole build process.

The build site is waiting for you...  If you're an individual, a team, are ready to explore Women Build Week, or to become a Team Lead on our build site, contact us.

You could also share your skills off the build site. Take a look at these rewarding opportunities that will fit your schedule, your interests, and your skill level:

  • events
  • committee
  • board member
  • administrative
  • photography
  • social media

Give back by shopping at our ReStores, or by donating gently used items or your salvaged kitchen, to our ReStore for resale. The Waterloo and Cambridge ReStore revenue covers 100% of our administrative costs, meaning every single donated dollar goes to building more homes.

Give funds and help more families in need achieve homeownership.  Changing a family's life in such a meaningful way is not possible without your support since we do not receive any government funding, and therefore rely solely on the generosity of this community.
