Habitat for Humanity Western

About us:
Hello everyone! Welcome to Habitat for Humanity Western! We are so excited that you are here browsing our page.At Habitat, we believe that everyone deserves a safe and sustainable place to live. Together with Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario (an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada), our mission is to break the cycle of poverty and provide not only affordable housing but also encourage homeownership within the London Community.1 in 8 families are faced with the decision to pay rent or to put food on the table. Through our numerous fundraising events, advocacy initiatives and countless volunteering hours, we strive towards making a family’s dream into reality by providing them with a safe and affordable home. Some of our past initiatives include providing custom “Habitat for Humanity Western” masks to the Western community, Trivia nights, Paint nights, Yoga sessions, Krispy-Kreme, Cinnabon and Chipotle fundraising events, Read-a-thon, and sending letters to the elderly. Most importantly, our most popular events include trips to the ReStore which are home and building supply stores that resell new and used building materials/furniture as well as going on local builds. With the ongoing pandemic, we are not entirely sure if builds will happen this year but will still provide ample opportunities for students to volunteer at the ReStore. This year, we have also developed a “Volunteer Database”, where students can seek out and participate in volunteering events within the London Community. In addition, we also wanted general members to be more involved with the club, and thus can participate in Exec meetings and spearhead their own initiatives.Come talk to the team during club’s week and look out for director applications and AGM dates on our socials. Excited to meet everyone this year!
