Pictou County Chapter
A fundraising campaign for Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia.
About This Campaign
This newly formed chapter will operate under the guidance of Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, and as such we are part of a network that helps families in 100 countries around the world, dedicating a new home about every 10 minutes.
Our goal is to promote home ownership as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty. We are a non-profit, community-based organization, and we invite people of all backgrounds to join us to build quality, affordable homes in partnership with volunteers, sponsors, donors and partner families.
We are currently planning activities in our community to help celebrate the launch of Habitat Pictou, and to answer questions you may have about who we are and what we do. Stay tuned for information on upcoming events!
Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia
Through volunteer labour, efficient management, sponsor funding and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent and affordable houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages held by Habitat Nova Scotia.Homes are built in communities where land availability allows either through donation or discounted purchase.Habitat for Humanity is a hand up, not a hand out. In addition to mortgage payments, each homeowner invests hundreds of hours of their own labour, called “sweat equity”, into the building of their home and the homes of others.
