Giving Local Families a Hand Up, Not a Hand Out.Habitat for Humanity South Georgian Bay helps low-income families build and buy simple, decent quality affordable homes through a no-interest mortgage with payments set at 30 percent of their gross income. This solution not only helps to provide available housing for families in need, but it also enables low-income families to build assets, reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance, give children stability and break the cycle of poverty. We invite you to join us.
By working together, we can build great things.
