Since 1994 Habitat for Humanity of Thunder Bay has been building homes and hope for families in need by providing affordable housing in the community of Thunder Bay. To date 39 families and numerous children have been served through our homeownership program and 30 new homes have been constructed in the city.
Habitat for Humanity Thunder Bay’s success can only be attributed to the partnership and the support of the community. Together with your contribution we can ensure everyone has a safe, decent, and affordable place to live. Our build projects can only happen with the support of our business partners and sponsors.
1 in every 8 families in Canada must choose between paying rent or buying food. We firmly believe that our homeownership plan is one of the best ways to break the cycle of poverty ensuring that no one has to choose between shelter or food. At Habitat we provide “a hand up, not a hand out,” All families are required to put in 500 hours of sweat equity, working side-by-side with volunteers to construct their own home, assisting on other builds or helping out in our ReStore or office.
