How to Apply

Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario helps low-income families build and buy simple, decent quality affordable homes through a no-interest mortgage with payments set at approximately 25 percent of gross income. This solution not only helps to provide affordable housing for families in need, it enables low-income families to build assets, reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance and break the cycle of poverty. We invite you to join us. By working together, we can build great things. Get involved today by contacting us at: info@habitat4home.ca
