ALIGNED Proudly Supports Habitat for Humanity
ALIGNED Insurance believes that it is a privilege to handle our clients’ insurance needs and that it is our corporate social responsibility to give generously and regularly to support the great work charitable and non-profits organizations do every day across Canada.
As part of our commitment to give regularly, every month an ALIGNED Advocate selects a Canadian charity of their choice and ALIGNED makes a donation to that organization on their behalf. In recognition of the great work they do, Joan Schwegel has selected the Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region, for the month of August, 2017.
More about Habitat for Humanity
“Established in 1988, Habitat For Humanity Waterloo Region (HFHWR) is a non-profit housing organization working to break the cycle of poverty by building simple, decent and affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families. This is all due to the love and support of volunteers and community partners. Focused on providing a hand up and not a hand out, HFHWR partners with families who are willing volunteer 250 hours, per adult, of ‘sweat equity,’ and will repay a zero-down payment, interest-free mortgage.
“Building Homes. Building Hope. Building Communities.”
Homeownership is out of reach for many families because a down payment is often too difficult to save for, and interest charges make a mortgage more than many can afford.
Habitat for Humanity builds simple, decent, affordable homes which they sell to partner families in the Waterloo community with an interest-free mortgage. By donating their time and skills, volunteers help hard-working, low-income families in the Waterloo Region area fulfill their dreams of home-ownership.”1
