Every donation contributes to building a home for a family. As the family pays off the mortgage, that money is used to build another home for another family, and so on! This means your donation can contribute to a number of houses for low income families in need of affordable housing. Help us change the cycle of poverty, to a cycle of homeownership!
Habitat homes are funded through profits from the ReStore, from mortgage payments on existing Habitat homes, and from individuals and community partners. The return on investment of a Habitat home is far reaching. Each donation will continue to benefit the community for years to come.
100% of every dollar donated to Habitat Sault Ste. Marie & Area goes into our program!
