Building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Who Can Apply?

Habitat Bermuda accepts applications from individual families churches, community groups, neighbourhood organizations or other affiliations that wish to recommend or sponsor a family in need.

The referring organization will then remain part of the construction or renovation process by supporting the family and helping to supply some of the volunteer labour.

Families or Organizations such as those above are invited to call the
Habitat Bermuda office at 296-0256 to obtain an application form.

If you are an individual or family who meets Habitat Bermuda’s criteria for assistance and would like further information, please email us at

Who Pays?

Because much of the labour and a significant portion of the materials are donated, the ultimate cost of most projects is expected to be much below market value.

Habitat operates a little differently from many of the affiliates of Habitat International in that most of our projects are pro bono. We have discovered over the 18 years that Habitat has operated in Bermuda, that most of the families that need our help are unable to afford to repay Habitat. Consequently, Habitat relies solely on the generosity and support of individuals and local and international companies located in Bermuda.
