ABOUT PRIDE BUILD
Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa invites members of the LGBTTQ+ community, along with their allies, family, friends and co-workers, to fundraise and swing a hammer in support of our vision of a world where everyone has a decent and affordable place to call home.
Sign up as an individual or gather some friends together to create your own Pride Build team to help local families who are in need of affordable housing build greater stability, independence and a brighter future. Please click here to meet our future Habitat homeowners who you will be supporting this year.
Plus no construction experience is needed! We'll handle the training, tools, safety gear, meals and all the fun stuff in between. Pride Build promises a day of fun, community activities, food and drinks, and fantastic fundraising prizes. 100% of funds raised will go directly towards funding the completion of our Jeanne d’Arc home building project.
We have a few spaces availabe for our first two Pride Build days:
- Saturday, October 21
- Thursday, November 16
