Women of Faith Build Homes and Hope



    TORONTO, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - On Thursday, October 16 more than 30 women of
different faiths, ages, cultures and backgrounds will gather at the first
Habitat for Humanity Toronto "Women of Faith Build" in partnership with the
Canadian Centre for Diversity. Located at the Peddicord build site in the
Beach (Main and Kingston Road), this is an opportunity to build relationships
while building decent, affordable homes and a brighter future for families in
need.
    The goals of the "Women of Faith Build" are to increase the profile of
the need of affordable housing through faith-based organizations and to bring
a diverse group of women together to share a meaningful intercultural
experience.
    The Canadian Centre for Diversity has a mission: to educate a generation
of young Canadian leaders about a society that celebrates diversity,
difference, and inclusion. It is a leading Canadian provider of programs and
communication initiatives that educate against discrimination, prejudice and
bias and is an important resource for anyone seeking to play a proactive role
in combating all forms of discrimination in Canadian society.
    Habitat for Humanity Toronto and the Canadian Centre for Diversity share
the common vision of a society where people can live without discrimination of
any kind, including economic adversity. By building decent, affordable homes,
Habitat for Humanity provides partner families a hand up to enable them to
live in a safe, healthy, and positive community.

    Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity Toronto is a non-profit,
non-denominational housing organization. Habitat welcomes all people without
discrimination to join us to build simple, decent, affordable homes in
partnership with low-income families. One hundred percent of all
administrative and fundraising costs are paid for by the operation of three
ReStores, which sell donated, quality new and gently-used renovation
materials. Internationally, Habitat for Humanity has built more than 300,000
homes with families in need in over 100 countries. Every 10 minutes, Habitat
for Humanity builds a new home.
