Habitat for Humanity International was founded in the southern United States in 1976 by Millard Fuller and since has built more than 200,000 homes in over 92 countries.
Habitat for Humanity Canada was founded in 1985 and has 70 affiliates in all 10 provinces and territories. Over 1000 homes have been built in Canada. Former Governor General, The Right Honourable Ed Schreyer and his wife Lily are Patrons of Habitat for Humanity Canada and volunteer at the annual Ed Schreyer Work Project build every year.
Habitat for Humanity, Prince Edward-Hastings Affiliate was incorporated in 1995. Staffed strictly by volunteers and depending on donated funds and resources from local communities, the Affiliate has built three single family homes in Belleville, one single family home in Trenton by our Quinte West Chapter and recently through our Prince Edward County Chapter, a semi detached, two family home in Picton. Also, completed in 2005 was a semi-detached home in Bellevillle, bringing the total Habitat homes in the Affiliate to 8. Plans are underway for the next build in 2007.
The point of the Golf Tournament was to raise funds for the next builds. Once again it was a success, the 9th build was completed late 2007.
Congratulations Habitat for Humanity! Keep up the Good Work.
