Who we are

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 families through affordable housing.

Established in 1993, our mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting home ownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.

We bring communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.

Vision Statement: A world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
