Home Builds:

  • build4Build with Us!

    Imagine life without a home since so many hard-working, low-income families don’t imagine it – they live it. Habitat for Humanity helps these families build simple, decent homes they can afford. The family selection process evaluates need, current housing conditions, financial status, character, and willingness to participate in the Habitat for Humanity program. All people in need, regardless of race or belief, are welcome to apply to Habitat for housing. Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie & Area has constructed 7 homes since 2004, giving families in Sault Ste. Marie & Area hope for the future.

  • howitworksOffering a Hand-up, not a Hand-out

    Volunteer labour and donated materials HFHSSMA builds homes in partnership with local families in need of affordable housing who do not qualify for a conventional mortgage. Partner Families invest 500 hours of ‘Sweat Equity’ with Habitat and repay a zero percent interest, geared to income mortgage. Families are set up to succeed as homeowners, with training and peace of mind as they build equity in their homes.

     

    Sponsors

    Habitat homes rely on Sponsor Partners to cover a large portion of the costs associated with the builds. The other portion of the house is covered through the use of volunteer labour and donations from the community and corporations. These donations take many shapes: from a $100 donation made to the Habitat program to a local business donating new building materials such as lumber or kitchen cupboards, to donating their staff’s time and expertise to the build.
