When you donate to Habitat for Humanity, you're helping every kid have a safe and stable home for the holidays

As we head into the holiday season, your donation can make a life-changing difference for local families like Thad's.

Thad and his wife Lisa bought their Habitat home 16 years ago. They have a safe and stable home, and a life today that they never would have imagined possible all those years ago.

Thad worked as a contractor for a well-established IT company in Calgary. Lisa was a homemaker and cared for their girls.

The family recalls moving once every 18 months, always looking for a better rate, or a house that was more suited to their girls’ needs.

Lisa recalls holes in the door frame of one rental where wind and snow would leak in. That, coupled with mold growing in the insulation, meant the family was sick often.

"We wanted to give our girls a happy, safe place to live, but it was all we could afford.”

Thad kept running the numbers and coming back to the same conclusion: there was no way they could care for their girls and save for a down payment. “It was impossible.”

Seventeen years ago – in December of 2002 – Thad and Lisa received a phone call that would change the rest of their lives. They were approved to buy a home through Habitat for Humanity.

Today, they reflect on how the stability of that home has benefited their family. 

“This house has given us stability,” Lisa reflects. “That stability gives our girls confidence, and the confidence helps them to reach their goals and surpass what we thought was possible.”

Thad echoes the same sentiment. “This house has changed our lives.”

Everyone parent wants a better future for their kids. Donate today and help every kid have a safe and stable home this holiday season.

There's something about having a home base that you know is always there that makes it easier to plan the rest of your life.
