Goal

With the help of volunteers and Habitat homeowners, local Habitats in every province and territory help build and rehabilitate safe, decent and affordable homes, including single-family and multi-unit houses. Originally conceived as a green initiative that would help local Habitats repurpose and reuse building materials, today Habitat 'ReStores' are nonprofit home improvement stores that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories and building materials to the public. The money raised from the sale of items at the nearly 100 Habitat 'ReStores' across Canada help local Habitats build more homes for families in need of a decent and affordable place to live.
