Creditaid-Part of the Habitat Family


Creditaid is proud to support various community endeavours and has been an important supplier to Habitat for Humanity Manitoba for many years.

Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg was incorporated in 1987 with the vision of helping to eliminate poverty housing in Winnipeg. Today, by mobilizing volunteers and community partners like Creditaid, Habitat for Humanity Manitoba works with people from all walks of life to build safe, decent, affordable housing for purchase by low-income working families.

Habitat Women BuildAt Creditaid, we have the expertise to support this wonderful charity by providing budget strategies to new Habitat homeowners that will help them prepare for home ownership. Our services are provided to approximately 25 Habitat families per year throughout the province of Manitoba. The financial education they receive helps to instill a sense of accountability and pride in their new home ownership status.

The meetings between Creditaid and the new home owners are private and confidential, and are also a mandatory requirement of all new Habitat families. The families use the advice and guidance provided by Creditaid in all aspects of their lives – not only those related to home ownership. The families are left with the skills necessary to budget effectively and manage their debt responsibly for a lifetime.

We are happy to be part of the Habitat for Humanity family and hope to continue helping Habitat families long into the future.
