Give now to help more families benefit from the stability of home ownership

A Habitat home is a stabilizing force for a family. Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development and the financial flexibility for parents to make investments in their families’ futures.

There is a growing need for affordable home ownership solutions for families in Southern Alberta. More than 4,000 families are on the waiting list for social housing in Calgary alone. Parents are working hard to provide for their children, but high rents, an unexpected illness or accident, or a family crisis makes saving for a down-payment and owning a home out of reach.

When we build homes, we build the foundation for generations of families in Southern Alberta to build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.

“I build because it's very rewarding to see the happy smiles on the young families as they're moving to their new home. You know if you give out yourself to others, you'd be rewarded and certainly that has been the case with me.”

Adrian Chuldleigh — Crew Leader for four years

Every Habitat home is purchased through an affordable mortgage to help families build financial stability

Habitat makes home ownership affordable by offering a mortgage with no down-payment, no interest and monthly payments that never more than 25% of a family's household income. This gives working families the ability to purchase their own homes and become independent home owners.

Habitat homes are built to last

Strong and stable homes build strong and stable communities. Habitat homes meet and exceed industry standards of building and blend seamlessly into the neighbourhoods where they’re built, becoming part of the fabric of each community.

Each Habitat build project is managed by full-time, professional construction staff, and we have received the nationally recognized Certificate of Recognition for the safety and quality of our building practices. Every home goes through a complete planning process, from permitting to design to construction.
