Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area (Habitat GTA) is a non-profit housing organization that mobilizes volunteers and community partners to provide affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. Founded on Christian principles, we welcome all people without discrimination to join us as we build simple, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with low-income families. By owning their own home, families are able to achieve greater stability, and improve their overall health, while building equity for their future.
The vast majority of our administrative and fundraising costs are paid for by the operation of our ReStores. Habitat ReStores sell new and gently-used donated building and household products.
On April 1, 2014, the Habitat for Humanity affiliates of Brampton Caledon, Toronto, and York Region legally amalgamated into one new affiliate serving two-thirds of the GTA. Called Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area, the combined affiliate has partnered with thousands of volunteers and organizations, building almost 270 homes for families in need of affordable housing. Every 5.5 minutes, Habitat for Humanity helps a family improve their housing situation somewhere in the world.
