Please donate to Habitat for Humanity Canada to help families realize their dream of owning an affordable home.

When you do, you will be supporting Habitat’s model of affordable homeownership that helps families “bridge the gap”. You will be providing working families in need of decent housing with the opportunity to purchase their own Habitat home, where they will volunteer up to 500 hours and pay an interest-free mortgage geared to their income. A Habitat for Humanity home is a strong foundation for a family to build a better life. Strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities. Your gift can be a stabilizing force for a family and the community. Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health and stronger childhood development. The financial stability that comes from affordable mortgage payments means families can start making plans for the future. 

Our Shared History

Some stories with our charitable organizations we partner with.

You have collaborated and worked with Jolera for several years. How would you describe your journey with us?

We transitioned to having our IT needs and technical support managed inhouse, to being managed by Jolera and it has been very helpful.  Having seasoned, trusted experts to rely on to take care of our IT systems is great, so that our staff can focus on their jobs instead of worrying about technical solutions.

 

As a non-profit, your organization goes through many different cycles and schedules; possibly none more important than the holiday season. What is most important to your organization this holiday season?

The holidays are very important for Habitat in Canada as a time when we celebrate the hundreds of new homeowner families that will be celebrating their very first holiday season in their new homes.  We hear from new homeowners how impactful it is to be in a safe stable home during the holidays, and it’s because of our many generous donors. We are thankful for the incredible work that we are able to do as a result of the support of the donors, corporate partners, volunteers and Habitat employees across the country.

 

For a high-profile non-profit organization, how important are as-a-service solutions that come with fixed monthly costs? What has it meant to your constituents, stakeholders and all the people you help in the community to have an IT environment that is best in class for your data, assets and people?

Knowing that we have around-the-clock support allows us to fix any issues we experience with our IT systems very quickly so we can keep our focus on the work we do in support of our mission of helping families in need of safe and decent housing.
