What We Do
Habitat for Humanity brings communities together to help families build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
With the help of volunteers and generous donors, we build decent and affordable homes that provide a solid foundation for local families to build better, healthier lives. Habitat homeowners volunteer up to 500 hours and pay an interest-free, affordable mortgage – geared to their income – to buy their home. The affordable mortgage payments go into a revolving fund that allows Habitat for Humanity to build more homes and provide more people with affordable homeownership opportunities.
Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North’s mission is to empower hard-working families and make homeownership affordable by mobilizing community spirit and generosity.
A world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
Housing for All: Access to safe, decent and affordable housing is a basic human right that should be available to everyone.
Human Dignity: We believe in the worth and dignity of every human being. We respect the people we serve and those who help us in this effort. People are our greatest resource.
Partnership: We can best achieve our mission through meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships with others.
Faith in Action: Building on our Christian foundation, we serve and work with people of all faiths and beliefs in a spirit of justice and compassion. Faith is lived through action.
Diversity and Inclusiveness: There is a role for everyone committed to our vision, mission and values. We seek to enrich our organization through diversity.
