Let’s get together and build hope

UM Rady Faculty of Health Sciences Habitat Build Project

As a faculty focused on health and social well-being, we believe that social responsibility and accountability are core values for our students, faculty and staff.  Too many children and families cannot afford housing which has a detrimental effect on their health, education and self-esteem.

University of Manitoba faculty, staff and learners are joining forces to make a difference, to build a house for a family in need.  The Rady Faculty of Health Sciences is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity Manitoba on our third build project and we are counting on your support to make this build a success!

WHEN:  June 20 – 30, 2016, 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (weekdays)
WHERE: 299 Patrick Street

How can you get involved?

You can sign-up to volunteer for a build shift or you can make a secure online donation and help us reach our fundraising goal! Contributions can also be made through a donation package, which can be picked up at the following locations:
