A simple idea executed with immense passion - 200 women each contribute $1,000 and countless volunteer hours to fund and build 2 homes each year. Since it’s launch in 2011, the 200K Women’s Build has raised over $300,000 and changed the lives of 4 families. The goal is to raise one million dollars in a period of ten years or less to change the lives of ten families and generations thereafter. By launching and raising 200K this year we will be halfway there.
Businesses in the city of Regina can accept our Adopt-A-Day challenge by providing volunteers and sponsorship to build with us for a day. Participation is encouraged from employees and even clients - a great team building experience while giving back to the community.
If you or your business is interested in booking an Adopt-A-Day you can find more information here or email our Fund Development Manager
Genworth Canada has been a partner of Habitat for Humanity Canada since 2000. For the last nine years, Genworth Canada presents the national Meaning of Home contest to illustrate, for children and their families, the importance of having a safe, decent and affordable place to live.
The Meaning of Home contest challenges youth in Grades 4 - 6 to write a short composition or poem that expresses what they "love" most about their home, with the winner receiving a $60,000 grant to be directed to their local Habitat affiliate. Habitat Regina has seen great support and has received runner-up prizes in 2013 and 2014. Thank you to all the students, teachers and parents who have joined us for this amazing contest.
