Sumac provided both ample time and attention for Habitat for Humanity Okanagan to make a strategic and informed decision as we upgraded from a spreadsheet world to a one-stop database. After extensive research, we chose Sumac and have never regretted that decision. Sumac supported us from the early days of transition and continue to support us in a timely and respectful manner to both our queries and our requests. We appreciate their attention to stay current with updates and new components as the market and work culture changes. Our staff have happily experienced an increase of work production, team spirit and individual time efficiency in a very busy and complex non-profit organization. – Deborah Guthrie, Executive Director
Habitat for Humanity Okanagan is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit, housing organization. Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership model empowers families to invest in homeownership. Through volunteer labour, efficient management and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of homeowner (partner) families.
Habitat homes are sold to partner families with no down payment required and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages. Mortgage payments go into a revolving fund, which is used by affiliates to build more homes for more families in need. HFH Okanagan serves Kelowna, West Kelowna, Lake Country, and Peachland in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. We also sponsor a Chapter in the nearby city of Vernon and Penticton.
