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

When you give today, you'll help us raise the 80% of building costs for 155 homes this year!

This spring, you can help build a home for a family in need of affordable housing!

In 2019, we partnered with Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to build 414 new homes for families living with low income in various communities across Canada. In 2020 despite the COVID crisis, we were able to complete 100 new homes and start the building of 116 homes! This year, in our final year of partnership with the support of you and CMHC we intend on hitting our goal by building 155 homes in 2021. You can help us raise 80% of the funding needed and CMHC will provide the remaining 20%.
