What We Do
Habitat for Humanity Montreal (HFHM) was established in 1998, in response to a growing need for affordable housing across the Montreal Region. We are dedicated to helping families build a stronger future. At HFHM we build more than houses. We build homes. Homes, where families can find peace, shelter, safety, and comfort.
Thanks to the thousands of dedicated volunteers and donors who have shown unwavering commitment and generosity, we have helped 9 local families to realize their dream of home ownership, and opened the doors to security, confidence, hope and possibility.
