Mission:To mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means to break the cycle of poverty. Our actions are guided by these values:
HOUSING FOR ALL: We believe that access to safe, decent and affordable housing is a basic human right that should be available to all.
HUMAN DIGNITY: We believe in the worth and dignity of every human being. We respect the people we serve and those that help us in this effort and recognize them as our greatest resource.
PARTNERSHIP: We believe we can best achieve our mission through meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships with others.
FAITH IN ACTION: We believe that faith is lived through action. Building on our Christian foundation, we serve and work with people of all faiths and beliefs in a spirit of justice and compassion.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVENESS: We believe there is a role for everyone committed to our vision, mission and values and we seek to enrich our organization through diversity.
About PRINCE EDWARD-HASTINGS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Established in 1995, the affiliate has built 15 homes to date, with a semi-detached house currently going up in Trenton ON. We cover two counties, Prince Edward and Hastings. Build teams are hard at work planning to start construction in early spring 2015 in Belleville. In July, 2006, we opened the 49th ReStore in Canada, which provide the community with a variety of new and used renovation and construction items as well as a recycling depot for scrap metal and used batteries. The store is currently located at 365 Bell Boulevard, Belleville.
