Everyone deserves a stable, quality, affordable place to live
In addition to building and preserving safe, quality, and affordable homes, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity invites Habitat supporters to be advocates for funding, policy, and systems change for the entire continuum of housing.

Thank you for working so hard in 2015. We're so grateful you are a part of this team!
