Habitat for Humanity can bring the community together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership. Home ownership is central to REALTORS® and is one of our community pillars at RAHB – it is what we do every day.


The below donations were made possible through the Home Ownership Affordability Program (HOAP), which was funded by RAHB REALTORS®. The HOAP objective was to meet the needs of low-income families living in the cities of Hamilton, Burlington and their surrounding communities in the Province of Ontario by assisting such families with the acquisition and ownership of eligible residential housing upcoming terms appropriate for their means.
