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.
