Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity “tithes” ten percent of all privately raised undesignated funds to support Habitat’s mission worldwide. Our current tithe partner countries are Costa Rica, Ethiopia and Haiti. Each year, Twin Cities Habitat leads Global Village Trips to let people build Habitat homes in some of our tithe partners. It's our 5th year of building in Costa Rica, join us for one of the two inspiring adventures we'll lead there in 2015. Plus, look for details on a future trip to volunteer in Ethiopia.
Costa Rica – January 10-18, 2015 – Trip leader: Rebecca.Lucero@tchabitat.org
Costa Rica – March 14-22, 2015 – Trip leader: Noah.Keller@tchabitat.org
Since Twin Cities Habitat’s inception in 1985, more than $2.4 million has been pledged to build Habitat homes in other countries, making Twin Cities Habitat one of only a handful of affiliates to surpass the $2 million mark in tithe dollars.
In 2010, Twin Cities Habitat made a four-year commitment to allocate its tithe to financially support Habitat for Humanity’s work in Costa Rica and Haiti. In 2013, Twin Cities Habitat announced a new partnership with Habitat in Ethiopia. In addition to financial support, Twin Cities Habitat leads volunteer groups to build in tithe partner countries.

Though Costa Rica has a fairly stable economy, large government deficits, due to interest payments on exorbitant internal debt, have undermined efforts to maintain the quality of social services. Inflation rates remain at more than 10 percent, while an estimated 35 percent of the population lives in inadequate housing.Learn More
Twin Cities Habitat is excited to introduce Habitat for Humanity Ethiopia as our newest tithe partner! In recent years, nearly 47% of our homebuyers here in the Twin Cities have their roots in Ethiopia, and we are looking forward to furthering this connection and improving housing conditions in that country.Learn More
On January 12, 2010, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck the Caribbean nation of Haiti just 10 miles west of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Thousands of buildings and homes were destroyed. Millions of people were affected and more than 1 million people were left displaced or homeless. No one yet knows when Haiti will be ready to take on volunteer groups so there is no plan currently to include this as a tithe partner trip.Learn More
