Building Homes, Building Hope

Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976, Habitat Canada was founded in 1985, and the Prince Edward-Hastings Habitat for Humanity affiliate was formed in 1994.

Our goal is the elimination of poverty housing and homelessness throughout the world, making the provision of decent shelter a matter of conscience and action

Habitat for Humanity invites volunteers to work together in partnership with families in need providing “a hand up — not a hand out”.

The Prince Edward-Hastings Habitat for Humanity affiliate has built 19 homes helping 18 families and is an independent, not for profit housing program dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing by building homes in partnership with families in need.

Homeowners contribute hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” to the construction of their own homes and then repay a long-term, no-interest mortgage.

Internationally, Habitat has built more than 500,000 homes in over 80 countries around the world.

  • Vision: A world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
  • Mission Statement: To mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting home ownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.
  • Values Housing for all: We believe that access to safe, decent and affordable housing is a basic human right that should be available to all.
  • Human dignity: We believe in the worth and dignity of every human being. We respect the people we serve and those that help us in this effort and recognize them as our greatest resource.
  • Partnership: We believe we can best achieve our mission through meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships with others.
  • Faith in action: We believe that faith is lived through action. Building on our Christian foundation, we serve and work with people of all faiths and beliefs in a spirit of justice and compassion.
  • Diversity and Inclusiveness: We believe there is a role for everyone committed to our vision, mission and values and we seek to enrich our organization through diversity.
