Who We Are

UntitledEstablished in 2002, Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region is a non-profit, non-denominational housing organization.                                       We welcome partners without discrimination to help us build simple,       decent and affordable homes with low-income families.

We offer low-income families a hand-up, not a hand-out, giving them the ability to build wealth and hope through home ownership.

Amazing things happen to people when you “address” them.

We help families who…

  1. Can demonstrate a need for affordable homeownership housing.
  2. Are willing to partner with us and volunteer 500 hours of “sweat equity”.
  3. Have the ability to repay an interest-free mortgage over an average of 30 years.

Mortgage revenues go directly into a revolving home building fund to continue building yet more Habitat homes.

IMG_1654Every dollar you donate to Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region goes directly towards building homes with families in need. 100% of all administration costs are paid for by the operation of our local ReStore. The Habitat ReStore sells quality new and used donated building and renovation materials.
