Habitat for Humanity PEI works towards an Island where everyone has safe, decent affordable housing. Our primary purpose is to build homes in partnership with low income families and communities. We then sell these houses to the families who repay a zero interest mortgage with affordable payments based on their income. However, Habitat for Humanity PEI does much more than just build houses. Working towards an Island in which every person has access to adequate housing, we also:
Provide community-building and learning opportunities:
By engaging the communities we build in and encouraging volunteers of all skill levels to participate in every step of the build process.
Offer housing related technical assistance:
By teaching and training families to build, maintain and pay for adequate housing.
Promote innovative housing financing solutions:
By promoting accessible financial solutions for low-income families to improve their housing, financial and personal situations.
Advocate for adequate housing for all:
By organizing public activities, raising awareness and influencing policies that result in easier access to adequate housing.
