What is the Meaning of Home?

When you support our 2019 Meaning of Home campaign, you're linking arms with young students across Canada to empower families through affordable homeownership.

Students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 enter the Meaning of Home writing contest by telling us what home means to them.

Each entry equals a $10 donation to Habitat Canada from our corporate partners, led by founding sponsor Genworth Canada. For the winner of the contest, an additional $25,000 will be donated to a Habitat home build of their choice.

As students across the country enter the contest to help other children experience the stability and opportunity of a safe home, you can double their impact with a donation to help more families realize their dream of purchasing an affordable home.

Donate and double your impact today!
