About Home Reno Heaven

Our Mission at Home Reno Heaven is to raise money for the Cochrane Society for Housing Options, a not-for-profit organization that supports affordable housing initiatives and programs in Cochrane, Alberta.

Through our efforts, we hope to provide recycling opportunities for home renovation products, tools and appliances that still have a useful service life and may otherwise be discarded unnecessarily.
