Our families come from all walks of life. Retail store manager, hair stylist, electrician, and teacher just to name a few.
The Habitat for Humanity program provides a hand up to every day people who otherwise might never manage traditional homeownership.
Habitat homes are sold to our qualified homeowners at fair market value with an interest free, zero down-payment mortgage set at 25% of their gross annual household income.
In Regina our families are often paying between 50%-70% of their income towards rent. High rent leaves precious little to cover other expenses like utilities, food, and childcare. It makes things like children's activities, or even basic necessities like shoes, almost impossible and saving a down-payment to own a home is only a dream.
