Helping to build stronger communities in these difficult times for vulnerable populations

The RONA Foundation is driven by the desire to make a difference in the lives of many people every day. At a time when access to housing is a challenge, making Canadian populations all the more vulnerable, the Foundation wants to help communities with its Build from the Heart program. The purpose of this program is to provide financial support to NPOs with projects aimed at revitalizing a living environment or making access to housing easier for victims of domestic violence and their children, low-income families, and people with disabilities or mental health issues.

“It’s important for us to give back to our communities by enabling people in need to have a safe place to live. After all, it’s thanks to them that RONA has been part of the Canadian economic landscape for over 85 years,” adds Josée Lafitte, Director of the RONA Foundation.
