Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity - Community, Family, Home & You

June 23 - September 30

Victoria 

You are the key – 200 donors in 100 days can bring 11 families home. The Greater Victoria community (friends, neighbours, social and business networks) is invited to come together to help give eleven local families a hand-up into stable, affordable homeownership. Habitat for Humanity's goal is to collectively raise $200,000 between June 23rd – September 30th to directly fund Habitat Victoria’s active build projects. Construction has now started on the ten homes in North Saanich and one home in Central Saanich. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go directly to building these homes! Recent events have highlighted just how important a safe and stable home can be. The uncertainty we have all experienced this year is the ongoing reality for many families struggling with housing instability. Habitat for Humanity's partner families work hard to provide for their children, but struggle to provide safe, stable housing for them. They are drivers, caregivers, lab technicians, construction workers, educators and more. Many provide the essential services we all rely on in our local community. With your donation, you are giving them a hand-up into an affordable home to call their own, and helping them achieve a stable future that will benefit their children and strengthen our local community for years to come.
