The lives of 76 local families, including Pablo and Claire's, have changed forever thanks to caring individuals like you. When you donate to Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa this #GivingTuesday, you are not only joining a global movement of giving, you are also helping to build stronger, safer, healthier communities. This year, our Giving Tuesday goal is to raise $5,000. Every dollar you give helps local families build a stable, long-term affordable home and memories that will last a lifetime.
In Ottawa, over 42% of households are paying an unaffordable rent, forcing families to choose between shelter, food and other necessities. Habitat families, like Pablo and Claire's, no longer live paycheque to paycheque and can now focus on building their equity and saving for the future.
But our work is not done. With over 12,000 households on Ottawa’s Centralized Waiting List, we need your help to continue to grow the numbers of families served by Habitat Greater Ottawa. In 2020, we are breaking ground on an exciting new development in Wateridge Village, helping families to gain strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable housing. Your support today and all year round means that we can continue to help more families in more communities for years to come.
On Giving Tuesday, donate to Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa and give the gift of home this holiday season.
