Purchase Items

Select the items that you would like to purchase.

Lumber

Every gift contributes directly to a build project. $25 will help Habitat purchase lumber to start building the foundation of a family’s new home. Often, prior to purchasing their home, Habitat partner families are living in housing that was in need of major repairs. Habitat homes are quality, basic homes built to code, are energy efficient and economical to maintain. Your donation provides that stable support to a local hard-working family.

A lot happens around a kitchen sink. When your provide one for a Habitat home, your gift goes toward making sure that a parent doesn’t have to choose between paying a bill or purchasing food for their growing children.

Lighting

There is a sense of security – which is easy to take for granted – knowing that when you flip a switch, the lights will come on. Prior to moving into their Habitat homes, many of our partner families find themselves outside the 30% shelter cost-to-income ratio typically used as a benchmark for housing affordability. This makes it harder to make sure other bills are paid. By supporting Habitat with a donation to provide lighting in a home, you are helping a family break the cycle of poverty through homeownership.

Every mother needs to know her children have a safe place to call home. You can help keep a local hardworking family safe, supporting a Habitat build by providing a secure front door.

Attic Insulation

You can help keep a family warm with your generous support. Some Habitat partner families come from housing that had issues with mold, humidity, and poor heating systems. After moving into their Habitat home, with proper insulation and built to code, families report less frequent visits to the doctor, and fewer days of work missed because of illness.

Window

Every child deserves a home from which to explore the world. By providing a window in a Habitat home, you are giving a local family the opportunity to see themselves in a better neighbourhood. The vast majority of Habitat partner families report their new Habitat neighbourhood as safer, better for children, friendlier and more convenient than where they had lived previously.

Plumbing

The quality of the workmanship behind the walls is just as – if not more – important as that which can be seen. Habitat homes go through all the rigorous inspections of a new build, and we work toward building efficient as well as affordable structures. By funding the plumbing for a Habitat home, you’re insuring a hardworking local family has a quality home where they can build equity and break the cycle of poverty.

Flooring

The typical Habitat home is a basic starter home, designed to provide the family with the opportunity to personalize and build equity. Standard grade carpet, vinyl, and laminate flooring is included. When you support a Habitat home by funding the flooring, you’re making sure a family has a secure place to live, and get ahead in life.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are busy in the home of a young family. A recent study shows that after moving into their Habitat home, partner families are more physically active than before – and more active than the average Canadian. When children increase their participation in activities outside of school, having a properly functioning bathroom is essential. You can make this a reality for one hardworking local family.

Children's Bedroom

Every child deserves to live in stability. When a partner family moves into their Habitat home, they report marked improvements in children’s well-being and school performance. This includes higher confidence, improved behaviour, higher grades, increased enjoyment of school, and better attendance. Your generous contribution will give children a stable home with more room to study, which has an incredible impact on their future.

Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and your generous support can provide that for one local hard-working family. Having the proper space to prepare meals, gather, and eat together, means that families are able to live healthier and happier lives. A recent survey by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation reported that 86% of Habitat partner families indicate they are happier since moving into their home, and over 89% have improved family life.
