who we are

Habitat for Humanity Okanagan is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada, a non-profit housing organization. Habitat for Humanity’s model empowers families to invest in home ownership. We believe every family should have safe, decent, affordable housing.

what we do

Through volunteer labour, efficient management and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of homeowner (partner) families. Habitat for Humanity homes are sold to partner families with no cash down payment required and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages. Mortgage payments go into a revolving fund, which is used by affiliates to build more homes for more families in need.

where we work

Habitat for Humanity Okanagan has been in the Okanagan valley for over 20 years, having built and sold 22 homes and currently has 17 partner families. We serve the Kelowna region from Lake Country to Peachland. We also sponsor a Chapter in Vernon which serves the North Okanagan area and a Chapter in Penticton which serves the South Okanagan. Our Habitat for Humanity Okanagan affiliate offices are located on the second level at 1793 Ross Road in West Kelowna.

why we do it

Our vision is of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.

We had the pleasure of meeting a Partner Family this week, and she told me she moved into a townhouse thanks to Habitat for Humanity.  I asked her what she and her children thought of their new home and she said it is a miracle.  Gives me shivers just writing this!!!  Meeting a Partner Family is definitely the highlight of our week/month/etc. We were very pleased to do our very small part this week.  Also, today my husband and I volunteer at the ReStore worked and are so impressed!!!

thank you to our partners
