Events

There's nothing like a good party.  Especially when you know that proceeds are benefitting hard-working families right in your neighbourhood.  From our classic golf tournament to new and innovative fêtes, we always have something going on in Waterloo Region that's worth more than just pencilling it in your calendar.  

Women in Leadership Week: June 18 to June 22, 2018

We're are shaking things up this year, and hosting "Women in Leadership Week" from June 18 - June 22 thanks to generous sponsor, Manulife. Come for a day or the whole week, and feel energized and gain confidence as you play a role in helping local families achieve homeownership. This isn’t about excluding men, but including women. You don’t need to have any building skills, but you won’t believe how quickly you will learn them. 

AND this year, we have added a new element! At 3:00pm, after you have had a fulfilling day volunteering, we will be hosting leadership seminars that will be led by reputable and knowledgeable female leaders in our community. Topics will include: Women's health, entrepreneurship, women in STEAM, financial literacy, and women the non-profit arena.

Be empowered while helping local families achieve stability through homeownership. Everyone is welcome, so bring your sister, mother or girlfriends.

Celebrate Homeownership: 2018 Wellesley Dedication: 

You could literally feel the bubbling hope, barely contained excitement, and unbridled joy bursting forth in Wellesley. 2 of our partner families have been counting down the months, weeks, and days to this very moment. The moment they cross the threshold of their new home once and for all - as owners. The day they finally get to eat, play, sleep - and make beautiful cherished memories - right in their very own homes! Thank you for helping these families achieve stability through homeownership. On May 31, despite a few rain showers, we celebrated your impact, and our families' achievements. Check out the photos celebrating this grand occasion.
