For Sabrina and Madison, Habitat meant a clean start. For Lucy, it meant building a better future for her son in Malawi. And for Caroline it meant peace of mind and creating good, long-lasting memories with her friends and family.

In 2017, we helped build strength, stability and independence for 248 families in Canada and many more through our global engagement work. Read about these families whose lives were changed forever in our latest annual report [digital] [pdf].
