Interfaith Works Project

We are excited to announce that our 2020 Interfaith Works Project will take place from March 3 to May 14! The IWP is a project that brings together faith communities to support Habitat for Humanity as we provide affordable home ownership to local families. This year you and your faith community can be part of the action in one of three ways:

  1. Volunteering. There will be volunteering opportunities on our build site, and in our Prefab Shop and four ReStores! We are excited to connect members of various faith communities as they work TOGETHER towards a common cause.
  2. Providing Lunches. At each build site and ReStore we feed our volunteers. Sharing lunch is a big part of what we do at Habitat.
  3. Donating Items to the Habitat ReStores. The Habitat ReStores are a social enterprise that helps Habitat cover the cost of administering their affordable home ownership program.

Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials shared with us by the Anglican Synod Office and All Saints’ Cathedral:

“[Habitat staff’s] good humour and patience with volunteers had a calming effect and helped give a sense of confidence and camaraderie. I was amazed at how much we accomplished during the day, despite our varying skill levels.” ~ Alan

“It was an excellent team-building experience for me being the ‘new kid on the block. I loved getting to know people in a different context. It was also great to meet a few of the other people who were there as a group from Norquest College, newcomers to Canada.” ~ Sharon

“It was cool to learn new skills, while helping families and the organization. It was a lot of fun being able to spend time with my colleagues outside of work.” ~ Rochelle 

“I was curious about how the system would work, especially since most of us hadn’t done this type of work before. Everything is so well organized and I’d definitely do it again.” ~ Charis
