Who We Are
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. Beginning in 1994, Habitat for Humanity Kingston Limestone Region is one of 46 local Habitat organizations in Canada and part of the global network of Habitat for Humanity that operates in more than 70 countries around the world. Families and individuals in need of a hand-up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering, or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance for themselves.

Habitat For Humanity Canada
Habitat for Humanity Canada was founded in 1985. With the help of volunteers, Habitat homeowners, and 46 local Habitats working in every province and territory, we provide a solid foundation for better, healthier lives in Canada and around the world.
Habitat For Humanity International
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Millard and Linda Fuller founded the Habitat for Humanity movement in 1976 in Georgia. In 1984, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn took their first Habitat work trip, the Jimmy Carter Work Project, to New York City. Their personal involvement in Habitat’s ministry has brought wide-spread global awareness to our organization and its work. The housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 70 countries with over 1,400 affiliates worldwide sharing a common vision of safe and decent housing for all.
