How it works
We partner with working families to help them afford a home. Our path to homeownership requires hard work, time, and dedication, but this helps ensure the long-term success of the families we partner with.
Families who apply and are accepted to become Habitat homeowners, purchase their home through an affordable mortgage and contribute at least 500 volunteer hours to Habitat PEI.
With a little help, Habitat homeowners are able to achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves and their families. They are empowered to overcome the barriers that so often stand between their families and better, healthier, more financially stable lives.
Apply for Housing
Founded in 1996, Habitat for Humanity PEI is a non-profit organization working towards an Island where everyone has an opportunity to live in a safe and affordable home.
With the help of our generous volunteers, the organization has provided 72 families with safe, quality, and affordable housing throughout Prince Edward Island.
Habitat for Humanity PEI is one of 54 affiliates of Habitat for Humanity Canada.
Thanks to Habitat for Humanity’s help, a family somewhere in the world improves its housing situation every 10 minutes.
If you are interested in partnering with us to be a homeowner, please review the information below on ‘How To Qualify’
How to qualify
Eligible Habitat homebuyers must meet the following qualifications:
Need of better housing
There has to be a need for adequate shelter. Things to consider: current cost of housing, housing issues that can affect the health of the family and number, gender and age of people currently sharing a room.
Willingness to partner
There must be a willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity PEI. You must be willing to complete 500 hours of volunteer work, on the build site and in the ReStore.
Ability to pay an affordable mortgage
Successful candidates must have a regular income that is not Employment Insurance, Income Assistance, or any other “stop-gap” measures.
Habitat offers homebuyers an affordable homeownership opportunity. Their mortgage payments cycle back into the local Habitat for Humanity to help build more houses.
