Habitat Love Letters: Love, Homes, and Gratitude

As we approach the month of love and gratitude, we at Habitat would like to reflect on the incredible support we’ve received from our community. This February, we want to take a moment to extend our deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful supporters of Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North and the two ReStores which help us fund our current and future builds.

You have consistently shown unwavering love and dedication to our cause. Whether it's lending a helping hand at the ReStore, bringing your passion to the build site, or generously contributing to our fundraising endeavours, you’ve proven that when we ask for your support, you step up and lift us to new heights. Your contributions, big and small, have played a crucial role in building homes and hope for our families.

We feel incredibly blessed to have such an amazing community rallying behind our mission, and we want to celebrate you.

That's precisely why some of our current homeowner families have chosen to express the impact of your support on their lives. Take a moment to read these heartfelt 'Love Letters' from our families to you!

Love is shown in many forms, but when total strangers make the choice to help other total strangers, it's love. Read Michelle and Eric's story and their thank you to the community here.

Sarahs' Story and a Love Letter to the Community

Our lives have changed forever with secured, affordable housing. After being renovicted, having our rent double in the past four years, I'm relieved I don't have to worry about housing anymore.

Love is truly found in the 24662.67 hours people volunteered in 2023. Read our Volunteer Managers' story and her love letter to our volunteers.
