About Habitat for Humanity GTA:

In 2014, the Habitat for Humanity affiliates of Brampton Caledon, Toronto, and York Region legally amalgamated into one new affiliate serving two-thirds of the GTA, now known as Habitat for Humanity GTA (HFHT). It mobilizes volunteers and community partners to build affordable housing for low-income families and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. Volunteers and partner families build the homes with donated materials and labour, the partner families buy the homes from HFHT with interest-free mortgages, and mortgage payments are used to fund the construction of future homes. HFHT covers its overhead expenses with the proceeds from its retail operation, the ReStore, which sells donated building supplies, home furnishing, appliances, and décor.  In 2014, HFHT used over 8000 volunteers and 126k volunteer hours to complete the construction of 21 new homes. Since its founding, it has built 287 homes.
