Our vision is a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.

The Need for Affordable Housing

There is an urgent need for affordable housing around the world, nationally, and right at home in Camrose.

  1. Globally: 1.6 billion people need adequate shelter
  2. Nationally: 1.5 million Canadian households live in core housing need. This represents 13% of all Canadians.
  3. Locally: 800 Camrose families are in need of affordable housing. This is the equivalent of one family on every block. This includes at least 500 children in Camrose, which is equal to the enrollment of one of the city’s largest schools.

OUR MISSION.

Habitat for Humanity Camrose helps families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.

Habitat for Humanity – Affordable Home Ownership model

With the help of volunteers and generous donors, we build decent and affordable homes that provide a solid foundation for people to build better, healthier lives in Canada and around the world. Habitat homeowners volunteer up to 500 hours and pay an low interest, affordable mortgage – geared to their income – to buy their home. The affordable mortgage payments go into a revolving fund that allows Habitat for Humanity to build more homes and provide more people with affordable home ownership opportunities.

The application process

All Habitat homeowners go through a rigorous application process so that we can determine their level of housing need, their ability to repay Habitat’s interest-free mortgage, and their willingness to partner with us, which includes up to 500 hours of volunteering.
