Building Community Blog

To hear Mike Moody talk about it, you’d think he were in heaven when he discovered the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore six weeks ago. The ReStore, which is based in New Brighton, sells donations of building products, furniture and other housing products to the public for bargain-basement prices. Proceeds help build more Habitat homes. 

Something remarkable happened this past Wednesday, October 22nd. More than 260 women, and 3 men, gathered for the Hearth & Hope luncheon to support Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and to hear a keynote speech by Marilyn Carlson Nelson. The luncheon raised nearly $70,000 for affordable housing that will empower women in our community and improve the lives of their families and children. The amount raised was important, but the remarkable part of the day came in the fact that so many women gathered and acknowledged the power they wield to make a difference in the lives of so many families.

From the families we serve, to the materials and resources we use to create and preserve homeownership, it takes a dedicated community to support us in our mission to eliminate poverty housing in the Twin Cities. Take a look and see how Twin Cities Habitat works, and how you can get involved!
