Green building, or sustainable development, incorporates economic, health, social and environmental benefits, creating a sustainable community. We Integrate building practices that reduce detrimental impacts on the natural environment, promote healthy indoor air quality for occupants, and reduce energy costs while increasing long-term affordability. Our sustainable practices align directly with our organization’s mission to provide safe, decent, and affordable homes.
While Twin Cities Habitat has been incorporating green building techniques in our home production for more than a decade, we have also taken on a few LEED certified homebuilding projects to challenge and expand our capabilities in sustainable development. The purpose of the projects is to explore and further develop best practices in green building and sustainable development, with the intention of implementing those construction practices across Twin Cities Habitat homebuilding program.
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity strives to do the most good with every single dollar entrusted to us. Rest assured that a gift to support our mission creates an immediate and significant impact for the families and communities we partner with.
Every $1 you donate results in almost $2 of economic activity in our community.
