In commemoration of World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario will host an Open Doors event to help bring attention to the need for adequate housing around the world and in Oxford, Middlesex, Elgin and Perth counties on Monday, Oct. 3.

Members of the public can stop by our build site at 16 Forbes Street in London, Ontario and tour homes that are in progress and complete. Also, visit any of our five ReStores, have cake and coffee, and celebrate with us. “Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario is proud to participate locally in an international movement that believes in a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live,” said Chuck Quintyn, Chair, Board of Directors – Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario. “The four counties we serve will join together on World Habitat Day with the rest of the world and celebrate our commitment to families in all countries who are in need of shelter. I would encourage members of the community to come and celebrate with us Monday, Oct 3.”

If the public would like to make a donation, 100% of the funds received will go directly to the homes being built at 16 and 18 Forbes St. Habitat for Humanity International and its partners will take part in the U.N. designated day, observed every year on the first Monday in October, to advocate for better shelter around the world.
