2017 Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project
Start date: 9 July, 2017
End date: 14 July, 2017
For over 30 years, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter have traveled across the world with Habitat for Humanity and thousands of volunteers, donating their time and voices to build and improve homes alongside Habitat homeowners. Their time and effort helps raise awareness of the critical need for affordable homeownership. Close to 100,000 enthusiastic volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to help build or improve over 4,000 homes in 14 countries in partnership with families in need of affordable housing.
In July 2017, the Carters will bring their energy to cities across Canada as Habitat for Humanity Canada hosts the 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. In recognition of Canada's 150th anniversary and Habitat Canada's year-long celebration, the 2017 Carter Work Project will bring together thousands of volunteers to build 150 homes alongside Habitat families across the country. A large portion of these efforts will focus on building homes in partnership with Canada’s Indigenous families.
Nature of the Project Reach
The 2017 Carter Work Project is a Pan-Canadian movement that will span coast-to-coast.
To partner with 150 Canadian families, including Indigenous families, access affordable homeownership.
It takes the incredible commitment of sponsors, donors, community partners and volunteers alike to make Habitat Canada's work possible. To help bring independence to 150 families in need of a safe and decent place to live, Habitat needs you and your company’s support. We urge you to mark this important milestone in Canada’s history by engaging your team in our efforts. Every contribution has four times the impact thanks to the social return on your investment.
