Global Engagement

We believe everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live, both locally and globally, and that it benefits all of society when they do. That’s why we’re building the beyond for families and communities here and around the world.

As a global leader, Habitat for Humanity in Canada plays a key role mobilizing and investing funds in Habitat for Humanity organizations in countries around the world in an effort to serve the 1.6 billion people in need of safe housing. Through Habitat for Humanity Canada’s Global Neighbours program, we empower families to build strength, stability and self-reliance through housing and shelter solutions.

Global Neighbours

When we build a home in the Niagara community, we donate funds to support building another home globally for a family in need of housing – we call this Home for Home. That’s how we, and other local Habitats across Canada, help to achieve our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our Home for Home funds go towards Global Neighbours projects that support long-term change by building and repairing homes, as well as providing access to safe water-sanitation-hygiene solutions, assisting in disaster recovery and offering skills training and financial education. This program currently has multi-year projects in several regions across the globe.
