Habitat in Drumheller

Following the generous donation of land on Poplar Street by a private citizen, Habitat searched for champions in the community and people who cared deeply about helping local families build long-term stability through affordable home ownership. The regional Habitat committee was formally established in May 2016. This local group of caring individuals are working to be champions for Habitat and raise funds for the first Habitat build Drumheller in the spring/summer of 2018.

With this first build next year, we will be looking for qualifying homeowners. We have three primary criteria: Demonstrated need, the ability to take on an affordable mortgage through Habitat and the related expenses of home ownership, and a willingness to partner with Habitat.

For more information on Habitat and our work in Drumheller, or to learn more about Habitat home ownership, please visit

We will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday October 3rd, 2017. Please watch this web site for more information.
