About the position

Habitat ReStore

In support of Habitat for Humanity GTA’s homebuilding activity, we operate a network of social enterprise home improvement stores called Habitat ReStore. 


Our 12 locations across the GTA procure and sell new and used donated home furnishings, appliances, and renovation materials. Proceeds from sales help cover the cost to build homes, which allows donor dollars to go directly towards our mission. 


The Habitat ReStore model reduces the need for the production of new furniture and further stress on our supply of natural resources. It extends the value of quality, new and used furniture and household items and limits unnecessary waste, decreasing our collective carbon footprint.


Vision

A world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.


Mission

We mobilize volunteers and communities to help working, lower-income families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.

Requirements

Habitat homeowners

  • Working, lower-income families

  • Working, lower to moderate income families
