With a 10-unit project in Courtenay and an 11-unit project in Campbell River, 2018 marked the first year in our history where we built in two communities simultaneously.
Thanks to our many supporters, we were able to complete two homes in each community, and hand over keys to four homeowner families by the end of the year. This wouldn’t be possible without the many volunteers, donors, and community partners who came together to support our mission.
To our new homeowners: We are so proud of what you have accomplished for your families. You have shown your children what’s possible through hard work and determination.

“When I volunteered at the store or the build site, my heart was full. I am still so in awe of the people that donate their time on a regular basis, to help build stepping stones, or homes for life, for people they don’t know. This is such a wonderful group of people with big hearts and incredible compassion for their neighbours.” – Carlye

We accomplished incredible things in 2018, but we have even bigger plans for the year ahead. Join our efforts in helping local families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
- Volunteer. Help out on one of our construction sites, or in one of our ReStores, to make an impact on your community. No experience necessary.
- Become a monthly donor. For only $5 a month, the price of one specialty coffee, you can help us build homes. No amount is too small, and every donation helps a family help themselves.
- Apply to become a homeowner. Would your family’s life be improved by a safe and decent place to live? Learn more about our program and find out if you qualify.
