Habitat for Humanity brings communities together to help working families around the globe build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership. With your support, Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast bridges the gap for our local low- income working families by providing them with the opportunity to purchase their own home. Habitat homeowners work alongside volunteers to help build their home and pay an affordable mortgage geared to their income and volunteer 500 hours with us. Our 2020 Strategic Plan means that we will serve more people than ever before.
Open House & Community BBQ
Join us at our special appreciation Open House in Sechelt on Friday, August 16th, from 11:30 until 2 at the ReStore.
Customers, donors, partners, and volunteers will enjoy smokies, kids activities, and a draw with prizes. To enter the draw, we will have a short survey for you to fill out and put your name and email on, and that will be your entry for the draw!
Draw prizes include generous donations from local businesses; Talewind Books, Pastimes, Fresh From The Coast, Gibsons building Supplies, Popeye’s Locker & Storage Ltd, and The Sunshine Coast Slipper Factory.
Our kids activities will include a scavenger hunt with small prizes, a beanbag toss, and chalk colouring on the pavement outside the store.
The newly designed and staged space created by Emerge design will also be revealed.
A Special Thanks to Greenlane Homes!
Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast was honored recently at the opening of the Touchstone Discovery Centre in Gibsons. Greenlane Homes presented a cheque for $10,000 to Habitat’s Executive Director, Ronnalee McMahon at the July 10 event.
This donation will be used to install street lighting in our Wilson Creek development – an important part of our mission of providing safe, secure and affordable housing. We look forward to working with Greenlane Homes in the future.

Helping a family realize their dream of homeownership is simple. It’s as easy as donating your bottles and cans to our recycling program located at Salish Soils, or your couch that doesn’t fit into your new apartment to the ReStore. By doing these small things, you can become a part of a young families journey into self-reliance and independent homeownership.
From building homes to fundraising, whatever we do, we do it together!
