Last night, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity hosted a joyous dedication event to celebrate eleven homebuyer families and their new homes! Held at Habitat’s new office on University Avenue in St. Paul, the event was the first of its kind and size for the organization. The room was filled with energetic children, eager parents, and numerous volunteers, donors, staff, and supporters.

Volunteer Spotlight on Ruth Lunde

Faith Relations Assistant, Twin Cities Habitat

I worked with Ruth Lunde as soon as I started my new position at Habitat to help schedule her churchImmanuel Lutheran Church of Eden Prairieto work on a home repair project in September. Since then, I’ve worked with her to organize a build day for her church every other month.

Our office has been buzzing for the last few weeks since the 2015 Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala on Saturday, April 11. Nearly a thousand people gathered at the St. Paul RiverCentre for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s annual fundraising event. We had a blast sharing our mission with guests, seeing awesome construction couture outfits, and raising resources to help more Twin Cities families buy homes through Habitat.
