Thought for the Day

I have some very good news to share with you all. 

Just before I put pen to paper on that, I would like to share some personal thoughts with you.

As supporters of Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver, we all share a common vision and purpose.  That vision and purpose is to make the world a better place for those families we have collectively chosen to serve in many different ways.  In that service, you have dedicated yourselves and you have kept vision and purpose alive through often difficult circumstances.   That is amazing, a good reflection of the quality of character you each possess.   Donors, volunteers, staff and families alike.

I am grateful that you have kept the vision that someday, we would build homes for families that need our help, making a difference for them, their children, and their children’s children. 


Now, the good news!  We have received our building permits for 8180 Ash Street in Richmond!!!!  We can now begin to fulfill the vision so many of you have kept alive for so long.  We are going to begin building by May 31 with boots on the ground. 

We know exactly what to do now.  Build Homes.  Build Hope.


Habitat will now enter a new chapter in our history, and I am excited we all get to take this trip together. 

Now we look to all of our supporters more than ever to help us execute.  Whether it be donated services or product or cash, donating your time or fundraising - together we can have an impact.

Right now we are looking for volunteer part-time administrative build support, hoping a call out to volunteers will give opportunities to those who expressed an interest in the build program.  We have also posted for a site supervisor to oversee the next great challenge of building. 


Let’s celebrate!  This is a great day for all of us, and more good news is on the horizon, but for today?  Let’s go hard and be happy on our journey.  Looking forward to build days with you all.  Bring your energy, knowledge, enthusiasm and donations and we will get you in a hard hat and swinging a hammer.

With deep appreciation for each of you and your hard work.


My very best,
Dennis Coutts
