Adopt-A-Day

Adopt-A-Day at Habitat Hamilton


Habitat for Humanity Hamilton’s Adopt-A-Day program is designed for corporate and community groups to come together for a day of team building and house building at one of our construction sites. The combination of your volunteer efforts and a financial gift double your group’s impact towards Habitat Hamilton’s mission of providing safe, decent, and affordable housing to families in our local communities. 

By the end of your company’s Adopt-A-Day, your group will be connected with one another and the community in a truly unique way. The satisfaction of a tangible volunteer experience will leave your group motivated, exhilarated, and ready to take on the next challenge! You can rest assured knowing that 100% of your financial donation will be allocated towards Habitat Hamilton's Home Build Program. 

Not only can an Adopt-A-Day provide your employees with the tangible experience of building a home, it can offer much more. Your company will be taking a leadership role in demonstrating that you practice corporate responsibility and you will be seen as an example of positive change. Your involvement in a Habitat Build could strengthen how your clients, suppliers and members of the community view you. 

Habitat Hamilton partners with a diverse range of corporate, community, faith-based and educational groups, to build common ground by sharing our vision of a world without poverty housing. Volunteer days are an excellent way to engage your employees and members in a meaningful group experience on the construction site

Hamilton is a “City of Many Communities” comprised of over 500,000 people. As a community, we strive to help our own. With over 23% of our children under 18 and living in conditions of poverty, our program of giving a hand up and not a hand out to our partner families allows us to contribute positively. 

Our Adopt-A-Days are supported by Habitat staff that will be available to assist in any way they can. From your initial decision to become involved through to the actual day of your build, Habitat staff will be on hand to assist with registration, greet and host your team on site, and provide the needed safety training and skills transfer to ensure that your day is exceptional.

There are various levels of sponsorship available.

If your company is looking to donate resources or time to Habitat for Humanity in Hamilton, we'd love to speak to you. Contact us at development@habitathamilton.ca or at 905-560-6707 ext. 110.

“Volunteerism is an integral part our corporate culture at Siemens Canada and working with Habitat for Humanity provides our employees a very personal experience – a chance to see first-hand the value of their contributions at a Habitat Hamilton Build and the difference those contributions can make to the community.”

Paul Ostrander, President & CEO of Holcim (Canada) Inc. says,

“To truly champion change we need to all work together,”

“We take our responsibility of contributing to building sustainable communities very seriously and that includes being part of the solution to address the affordable housing issue in Canada. In working with Habitat Hamilton, our employee volunteers demonstrated that this goes beyond the act of corporate donation.”
