Habitat for Humanity
Transcript of Habitat for Humanity
A HAND IN, NOT A HAND OUT.
Habitat For Humanity initially started building one house for a family every two years. Over the years, they have definitely expanded their capabilities.
PAST & PRESENT
Castle Hill Build
Elliott House Heritage Build
WAYS OF PROMOTING
Word of mouth - Habitat for Humanity has several connections with schools and churches
Earned media - Habitat engages in multiple activities that intrigues reporters, resulting in advertisements in newspapers
Social media - Facebook, Twitter, website, etc.
Recently, Habitat for Humanity has exceeded this limit, and are currently working on a project that will provide homes for 18 families. This project will be completed in 2 years. From only being limited to building one house every 2 years, Habitat for Humanity is now able to build 18 houses in 2 years, which is a grand transition.

WHERE DO THEY GET THE MONEY?
THE RETAIL STORE
The ReStore is a retail store that Habitat uses to sell donated products for affordable prices.
It serves as the basis of Habitat's funding
It covers all the administrator costs
100% of donations go to cause
There are 5 main sources of Habitat for Humanity's funds:
ReStore - donated products are sold
Government - the region of Pel provides cash, while the city of Brampton and Caledon provide land
Corporations - offer free products and services
Grants - YPI donated a $5,000 grant last year
Individuals and community groups - youth volunteer groups and donated products are sold in the ReStore
HOW IT WORKS
Families are chosen depending on four main conditions:
1. Need - how necessary is a safe, decent and affordable house for the family?
2. Willingness to partner - families are required to work for at least 500 hours
3. Ties to the community - families are considered eligible for a house if they contribute to the community on a regular basis
4. Matching the criteria
In 1976, Americus Georgia, Millard Fuller founded Habitat for Humanity with Koinonia Farm, a Christian community.
Hoskins Square 20 A, B & C:
Hoskins Square is located in a subdivision just north of Bramalea City Centre. Three homes are being built to high energy standards allowing families to save significant dollars on their utility bills compared to conventional homes. Ground was broken in June 2011 for a single home and two additional homes broke ground late 2012. Construction is planned to be complete by spring 2013, allowing three families to experience the thrill of moving into their own home.
360 BUILT SMART
A basic human right should be accessibility to a safe and decent home for anyone and everyone.
Everyone human has worth and dignity. Among humans, those who aid in their mission are respected.
Their goal is more easily achieved with meaningful and beneficial partnership.
