About Us

Habitat for Humanity Niagara is a team of enthusiastic volunteers, community partners and staff. We are guided by our values and committed to transforming the lives of people in need through affordable housing.

Through generous support from individuals, businesses, and community groups, we are able to help families in Niagara improve their lives through homeownership.

Habitat for Humanity is founded on the belief that decent, affordable housing is a basic human right. We partner with low-income families who:
• currently live in substandard housing
• are willing to volunteer 500 hours of sweat equity"
• will repay a zero-down payment, interest-free mortgage

Mortgage payments from Habitat homeowners go directly into a fund to help build more Habitat homes.

100% of all our administrative costs are paid for through revenue generated by our ReStore, which sells quality new and used donated household and building materials. When you make a donation to Habitat for Humanity Niagara, every dollar of your gift goes directly towards building homes for families in need.

Habitat for Humanity Niagara is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada and part of Habitat for Humanity International which operates world-wide in providing affordable homes to families in need.
