Our Vision: Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph envisions a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to call home. But how do we get there? We start with our community.
Why We Build Homes: In Guelph, 1 in 5 people in our community live in core housing need, in Dufferin; 1 in 9, but these stats don’t impact a select few, these stats impact 100% of our community, because more people living in safe, decent and affordable housing makes our collective prospects better.
How We Build Community
At Habitat for Humanity, we picture a spectrum. In our model, wherever one enters along that spectrum, the goal is to provide a foundation for growth. In the Habitat ideal, that foundation is affordable home ownership.
In Guelph, the Cityview Village project is underway, we’re building 28 homes for single-and-dual parent families, people with disabilities, and seniors. Cityview Village will be a beautiful, vibrant, and integrated community that will help shape the future of our city.
After an extensive search, Habitat WDG has officially closed on the purchase of a property on Broadway in Orangeville on which preliminary plans call for the building of six affordable homes for local families.
Why We Need You: These builds are just the beginning. We’re planning more large-scale developments in both Guelph and Dufferin to serve a larger demographic, and better serve our community. Building a whole village is not an easy task, but with your support and engagement, we will continue to build more. With every brick we lay, we know we are building homes and building the future of community – our community.
