It Just Makes 'Cents'

Celebrating 20 Years of Building Homes and Building Hope
Since 1993, Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region (NCR) has been building safe, decent and affordable homes for low-income, working families to purchase with a no-interest mortgage and no down payment with monthly payments set at less than 30 per cent of their gross income. This solution not only helps to provide affordable housing for families in need, it also helps break the cycle of poverty.
Help comes in many forms and is easy to do. Volunteer at a Habitat NCR build or in our office. Help raise funds by engaging your friends, family or colleagues. Share in a corporate team building experience to build a house. Not only do we welcome groups, individuals are also more than welcome to volunteer and build.
Consider donating your gently used renovation materials, such as cabinetry, light fixtures and more, or your electronic waste to any one of our two Habitat for Humanity NCR ReStores. Did you know revenue generated though our ReStores pays for Habitat for Humanity NCR's administrative costs? That is how easy it can be - simply shop at a ReStore and you've helped a family in need.
The choice is yours. By fundraising, donating, volunteering, shopping, or sharing, you're helping Habitat for Humanity NCR build a home and give a family a new start at life.
