Habitat for Humanity
“creating a community that cares”
All Saints' Kingsway is becoming more involved in this non-profit, non-government, charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of economically disadvantaged persons through home ownership, and the belief that decent, affordable housing is a basic human need.
Every year since 2005 parishioners of All Saints' Kingsway have spent a fulfilling day at one of the HFHT build sites helping to construct a new home for a needy family.
Every year since, usually in October, a now much larger group of All Saints' Kingsway parishioners, spends a full day on some HFHT build site to help constructing a new home, in partnership with the new owners. Anyone over 18 years of age can volunteer -- women can do as much as most men!! (Age limit is a requiremnt of insurance and Ontario Labour Codes.)
While there is a lot of co-ordination involved in organizing for group build days, individuals can volunteer at any time by calling Faith Relations Co-ordinator for Habitat Toronto, at (416) 755-7353 or see their website at http://www.torontohabitat.on.ca
