Our vision is of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.

Ride For Refuge

Road Riders Unite For all of you out there who love the feel the wind in your face as you put your muscles to the test and navigate the asphalt, this event is for you!

  • We have plenty of reasons to celebrate today. Yesterday was our first Annual Women Build event. And we launched at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is style! Over 200 guests came and got us pumped about our Richmond Build and our upcoming 10-day Women Build blitz come spring 2015. Together we rallied and have $103,730 committed to our Women Build campaign, Power Women Power Tools, getting us even closer to our fundraising goal of $500,000. This is in part to our silent auction, Fund-a-Need items, the WestJet Help a Foundation Take Flight and 50/50 raffles, our $1000 committed Power Women, our Pink Hard Hat Club signees and our gracious corporate and community partners. We thank you all! This event was powered by P&G.

    In total we had 26 women and men pledge to raise $2500 through their networks, and are now official members of our Pink Hard Hat Club. We are thrilled! So let's keep up the momentum. Join today! Sign up and rally your friends, colleagues and family members to fundraise and make affordable, safe and decent homeownership a reality here in Greater Vancouver.

  • Tuesday will mark the launch of our Women Build campaign: Power Women, Power Tools. For the last couple of months we have been working feverishly to organize an innovative and supercharged event to showcase what Habitat for Humanity does, and how YOU can fundraise and join on our upcoming build site in Richmond this spring.

    For this all to come together, a big thank you is in order! To our sponsors, donors, volunteers...thank you for your generous cash donations, silent auction items and time. We look forward to feting in style and rallying friends, family and colleagues to support our Women Build. Hoorah!
