"I found Habitat for Humanity GTA as a very friendly organization for low income families. No interest, no down payment, training for home ownership, the best thing is you can own a house even if you are on a low income.

We thank God and thank the staff of Habitat for Humanity GTA who give us this opportunity. It's our dream; it's the goal of our life."
