About – Habitat for Humanity – NCR
The story of Habitat for Humanity begins in 1976 in Americus, Georgia, when Millard and Linda Fuller became concerned about the people in their area living in ‘poverty housing’. Internationally, Habitat for Humanity now operates in 100 countries, has built over 200,000 houses, and shelters 1 million children and adults around the globe. A new Habitat home is built every 24 minutes.
Habitat for Humanity Canada now has affiliates in every Canadian province and Territory. To date, volunteers and Habitat families have built over 1500 houses across the country.
Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region (Habitat NCR) became an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada in 1993. As one of over 70 affiliates in Canada, Habitat-NCR is responsible for raising its own funds, organizing volunteers and building homes for low income working families living in the National Capital Region. The first Habitat NCR home was built in 1994.
