Gifts in Kind
Canyon Habitat is a community-funded organization — a community that includes our Habitat homebuyers. When you give to Habitat, you join forces with homeowners who are “paying it forward” through their monthly mortgage payments to help another family in need attain decent, affordable housing.
Canyon Habitat works in equal partnership with families, volunteers and donors, building a sense of community as well as affordable housing. Our partners include corporations, churches, foundations, organizations and individual donors who donate Gifts In-Kind of labor and materials to fund and build our homes. You or your business can join our growing list of local businesses to support the building of a Habitat home by donating materials or services.
