Our Goals

  • Build several homes a year, preferably multi-units so we can support as many families as possible.
  • Raise funds to build safe and affordable homes.
  • Select low-income families who can afford to buy the homes and partner with them to support the transition to successful home ownership.
  • Recruit volunteers and local business sponsors to support our mission and goals.

Our History

Habitat for Humanity Fredericton Area Inc. was established in 1999 and incorporated in 2001, and now serves the northwestern part of New Brunswick. We have completed the building or renovating of 15 homes and are dedicated to adding 1-2 new partner families each year.  In 2010, we opened our ReStore and in 2012 we moved to a larger, more accessible location at 385 Wilsey Road, Fredericton. Restore operations support our build program

How do I buy a home?

Habitat homes are not donated. Partner families purchase them through an interest-free mortgage. Mortgages (depending on home size and location) range from $75,000 to $200,000. They pay 25% of their income towards the mortgage and property taxes. This amount is regularly evaluated and adjusted to reflect changes in income. To qualify, you must be a low-income earner, be in need of adequate housing, be able to afford the housing costs, contribute 500hrs of sweat equity towards building the home, have a home visit and an adequate credit rating. Visit our Apply for a home tab to learn more.


How do I volunteer?

Whether you want to volunteer year-round or just for a day, we have something for you! And you don’t have to be an expert in construction to join us – we need people on our committees, to help out during our fund-raising events, to serve meals on site and of course, to build. Visit our Volunteering tab to see our current openings and events, and to apply to become a volunteer. You can even involve your workplace by purchasing a Corporate “Adopt-a-Day” Team building session!


I have items to give away. Can I donate them to Habitat?

We welcome donations of leftover new and good, used building materials that we can sell at our ReStore to raise funds to support future builds. If you have siding, paint, doors, windows, tiles, light fixtures, etc… please contact us at 462-4881 to arrange a pick-up. Please call the ReStore to discuss your donation.


How can I help Habitat financially?

Please feel free to donate anytime!

Cheques can be mailed to:
Habitat for Humanity Fredericton
PO Box 643
Fredericton, NB E3B 5A6

Each donation is tax receiptable. If you have a home or property you would consider donating, please call the executive director at (506) 474-1520.

Well, the Second Annual Dentistry From The Heart event has come and gone! Once again, it was an awesome day of teamwork, smiles, and great experiences.  Dr. Pyke and her amazing team of volunteers (including Dr. Lance Schaefer and Dr. Matt Moore) saw 69 patients and provided over $16,500 worth of free dentistry.  Opened our doors at 7:30 a.m. Friday, May 1st and worked straight through until 6 p.m. We are so grateful to be able to use our skills and time to give back to our community, and we have to give a huge shout out to our sponsors whose generous contributions allowed us to do so:

–Patterson Dental and Henry Schein Dental, who donated filling material and other dental supplies.
–Crest Oral-B and the New Brunswick Dental Society, who donated toothbrushes, floss, and other oral health items for our patient “goody bags”.
–Ross Drug, who donated medications and offered a discount on prescriptions.
–Pita Pit, who donated lunch for the volunteers and coupons for the goody bags.
–Evolve Fitness at Kingswood, who donated free fitness coupons for the goody bags.
–Tim Hortons, who supplied free coffee and Timbits for the patients as they waited for treatment.
–Coveys, who donated posters for the event.

And most of all, thank you to the patients—you were so wonderful to treat and patient throughout the long day!

The most exciting news to come out of the day is that several other dentists in the Fredericton area are thinking of hosting their own events next year, so the movement is definitely snowballing. Together, we can greatly improve the oral health of our community!

Artist Statement

“Quintessential: the purest, most perfect or most typical form, manifestation or embodiment of some quality or class. This photo depicts the Quintessential Canadian. I find there are many symbols in this photo that truly represent Canada. We can see my father, a second generation Canadian of Dutch descent, wearing traditional Aboriginal snowshoes. I think that this demonstrates the multiculturalism of this country. He is walking on a large ice sheet in Chaleur Bay, the name of which is attributed to Jacques Cartier, one of the first explorers of Canada. On the other side of the Bay, we can see Quebec. This reminds us that our country has two official languages. I find that these are all signature elements of Canada that define this country very well.”

The Jim Gilbert’s Hug of the Week, Goes to The TUCKER CHILDREN” ABBY 8 & LIAM 6″

Abby and Liam, Raising money for a security gate for Shepherd’s House, and Orphanage in Haiti. They have raised 2000$!     so far with the goal of $2500 …. Parents Gregg and Sandy Tucker….. Make a Donation Today (Cell 261-6901)

Canada’s Huggable Car Dealer,  will be giving Abby and Liam, one of our Signature 3 foot Singing Teddy Bears and a $20.00 Gas Card for being selected “The Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals of the Week” for their very helpful efforts..

Shepherd’s House Orphanage Project: We are excited that you are joining with us in the mandate given to Evangelist Aaron Nelson and his wife Nathalie Nelson to help the less fortunate in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

Our Goals and Vision:
The SHM was organized exclusively for charitable purposes. Specifically, our main activities are as follows:

A Better Life:
Daily life is a struggle of survival for the children in Haiti. An estimated 65 percent of the population lives in poverty. In Rural areas that number is about 80 percent. More than 200 000 kids live in the streets. Our goal is to save as many as we can by bringing them off the streets and out of poverty to a new home and teach them the skills necessary to lift themselves out of misery and into a bright future.

Health Care:
Infant mortality is 76 per 1,000 births. More than 1 child in 10 died before the age of 5. There is only 1 physician for ever 17, 064 inhabitants. (Haiti population is about 9 million) Upon arrival at the organization, each child will receive a good health care program. We will hire a private doctor for them. Ever child will undergo several medical tests during their first 6 months and/or every time when need be. The best medicine and vitamins will be provided when needed.

Better Nutrition:
Malnutrition affects almost every child in Haiti. At Shepherd’s House Ministries, the children will be provided with clean water, vitamins, and 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner.)

Better Education:
40 percent of the population is under the age of 14. Close to half of primary aged children are not attending schools. Haiti had an illiteracy rate of over 55 percent, the highest in the Americas. Our children will attend a non-discriminatory primary-secondary school in the country. We will use every good tool necessary such as: Reading materials, tutors, field trips, and sports to better educate those precious souls. We believe that every child has a right to go to school and we will make it happen.

When one comes under, they will be fed, clothed, loved, and housed. They will receive treatment for their addictions and illnesses. They will be counseled, served, listened to, educated, and edified to their highest potential.

Operation Compassion:
Operation Compassion is to provide, information, and resources to help fulfill the call to feed the hungry, care for the elderly and to reach out to those in need.

Men and Women of Action:
Our mission will provide men and women the opportunity to show the love of Christ by participating in hands-on ministry through volunteer service in construction, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance while enhancing other ministries so that they will be more effective, efficient and fruitful in their participation in the Great Commission.

Youth:
To mobilize a generation of disciples that know, love and follow Jesus Christ and actively advance the kingdom of God to the nations of the earth. To cultivate a discipleship movement that will gather, equip, mobilize, and make disciples, that will perpetuate disciples that make disciples, leaders that develop leaders, and churches that plant churches.

To accomplish these goals, Shepherd’s House Ministries purchased land in Gressier, Haiti in June 2007. Engineering Ministries International (EMI) went to Haiti to design the orphanage at Shepherd’s House request. The design includes two Dormitories, a K-12 School, a Multiuse Building (with kitchen, dining, chapel, and study facilities), a Sports field and open space for the children to play and explore. Each dorm will house 100 children in ten bedrooms, one for girls and the other for boys. The school will allow the children to receive a traditional education with opportunities to learn trades and life skills.

Utilities are required to sustain and educate each child and the new property has no water or sewer and although electricity is nearby, it is expensive and undependable. Therefore this design includes potable water system with a well and for the waste water; a septic/leach field system. For power, a diesel back up generator is included. A future self sustaining electrical/power system is desired; possibility utilizing Solar power.

Please prayerfully consider how may become part of this labor of love to glorify God and serve the children of Haiti. We look forward to hearing how the Lord leads you. If you would like more information please contact us.

THE JIM GILBERT’S WHEELS AND DEALS HUG OF THE WEEK GOES TO… BIG HEARTS SMALL CITY… AND THEIR NEXT PROJECT, “FARMER HERMAL DUGUAY’S HOME RE-BUILD” !! FOR INSPIRING US TO HELP FILL THE GAPS IN COMMUNITY RESOURCES… THANK YOU !!

union-street-fredericton-fire

An elderly woman who lost her apartment and all of her belongings in this Union Street fire in Fredericton is now receiving assistance from the group Big Hearts Small City. (My New Brunswick/Twitter)A community group called Big Hearts Small City, based in Moncton, has stepped in to help a 70-year-old woman who lost her Fredericton apartment and all of her belongings in a fire on Union Street on Friday.

Jason Surette, the founder of the organization, works closely with the Red Cross, which provides three days of lodging to people in emergency situations.

“Part of our task is to try to help someone find a place to go after that three-day period and that’s what we did over the weekend.”

Surette says he started Big Hearts Small City after noticing there was a lot of community support for people who lost their homes to fire as far as donating clothing and furniture, but if they didn’t have insurance and weren’t receiving social assistance they were often homeless.

“When it comes to a place to stay people don’t think of that. You can donate them all the stuff in the world but if they don’t have a place to put it, it’s not going to be any good for them.”

Surette expanded his services to Fredericton in January and says so far he is working with Killam Properties, although he would welcome other property management partners.

He says Killam Properties was “very generous” and willing to help the elderly woman who had no insurance and no where to go.

“It was such an elderly lady that it did take a little bit of extra time to find her a place within her budget and to meet her physical requirements so they’ve agreed to put her up in a fully furnished apartment until they can find a place for her to go within the Killam Properties network.”

Surette says the 70-year-old woman was very grateful after such a terrifying experience.

“All she got out of her apartment when the fire happened was she grabbed her jacket, she had a nightie on and her winter boots and that’s all she got out of her house.”

The century-old home that had two apartments was so badly damaged by the fire it was immediately torn down.

Members of the Fredericton Fire Department did go back into the home with family members before the home was demolished and retrieved a few documents and family heirlooms.

Surette says the woman is very grateful and plans to work with the Fredericton Anti-Poverty Organization to collect whatever items she needs when she does find a permanent home.

“She really thought she was going to have nowhere to go and when she found out it was a furnished apartment she said, ‘Do I have to bring pots and pans with me?’ and I’m like, ‘No you just have to bring yourself and a little bit of food with you, everything is in the building, in the apartment for you.'”

Surette says since he started Big Hearts Small City he estimates he has helped about 100 fire victims.

Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada – January 4, 2014 Flow Home Cleaning is a locally-owned business that has teamed up with Cleaning For A Reason, an international nonprofit foundation. Flow Cleaning is dedicated to being Fredericton’s favorite home cleaning service by offering consistent, professional, and friendly customer service. Flow wants their clients to come home to a fresh, perfectly clean home and to feel their stress melt away as they step in the door. The service is personalized and clients are guaranteed 100 percent happiness and satisfaction. The staff at Flow are covered by company-funded health benefits plan and protected by WorkSafe NB. Owner Monica Danielski wants Flow Home Cleaning to be seen as a company that cares for their clients, their staff, and also their community in which they live.

Danielski states, “I could not imagine how overwhelming and difficult it would be to undergo cancer treatments, while at the same time have to take care of your family and home. It might sound small to some, but we strongly believe that having a clean home can make a difference. In the past we have cleaned for clients dealing with critical illness and they told us we helped to make their home a place to heal and invite others in. Dealing with illness can also be an isolating experience and many clients said that our visits were the highlight of their week. We are so pleased to be joining with Cleaning For A Reason who will help us connect with women facing incredibly difficult times. We are hoping that the donated cleanings will make their lives just a little easier.”

Cleaning for a reason

The company has agreed to help women battling cancer by cleaning two homes per month for four consecutive months at no charge. The only requirement is that the homes be within the company’s existing service area of Fredericton and surrounding areas. For more information about this company, go to http://www.flowcleaners.com.

Cleaning For A Reason strives to aid women who are battling cancer by teaming up with professional cleaning companies across the United States and Canada. Together, these two forces offer free house cleaning to meet the needs of women, and since 2006, have donated more than $4.6 million in free services, helping more than 16,000 women with cancer. Based in Lewisville, TX, Cleaning For A Reason works with more than 1,200 residential cleaning companies and continues to grow and gain support.
