Who Habitat Victoria Serves
To qualify for a Habitat home, families must meet three core criteria:
How Your Donation Helps
Habitat builds homes from the ground up. The cost of the land and construction are raised from the community through individual donors, companies, other funders, and through volunteer labour and donated products.
When a home is complete, all the funds required to build it should have been secured. The home is then SOLD at the full fair market value to the Partner Family, who begin to pay an INTEREST-FREE mortgage that is correlated to not exceed 30% of their household income each year.
These mortgage payments go into our revolving Fund for Humanity to buy more land and build more homes. This means that a Habitat Partner Family, simply by paying their mortgage, are not only building equity in their own home, they are helping the next Habitat family into their home! What a powerful “pay-it-forward” model.
Habitat is able to put donated funds directly into its build program because it self-generates its operational costs through its ReStore. The ReStore accepts and sells 100% donated new and gently used building supplies and household goods. Net proceeds from the ReStore cover the administrative costs of operating the charity.
