Family Partnership – Habitat For Humanity Quebec
Habitat for Humanity Quebec responds to the urgent need to help families in Quebec with modest incomes who live in precarious housing conditions, both in terms of their health and the security of their homes. Every family that becomes a Habitat partner has the chance to own a healthy and affordable home to build a sustainable future. With no down payment, and with very advantageous interest rates, Habitat for Humanity Quebec presents an opportunity that would never be offered in the traditional financial system.
