Unlike many of her peers, Linda Griffin knew what she wanted for her career at the young age of 14. At the time, she had been working at the local Phillis Wheatley Community Center in Minneapolis, and she was in charge with helping put on the yearly talent show. A judge from the talent show (who also happened to be a bank president) invited Linda to orchestrate the ice cream social event that was coming up at his bank. After helping with that event, Linda fell in love with the banking industry.

There is power in community.

At least, that's what we've learned through our partnerships and experiences with the Jordan neighborhood in Minneapolis, and Frogtown neighborhood in St. Paul.

Together with other local organizations and community groups, Habitat's Neighborhood Revitalization program has carried out several community-building projects in these close-knit neighborhoods to engage residents and provide service opportunities to make home improvements and enhance the aesthetics of the block(s). 

Although Habitat for Humanity is probably best known for our homebuilding and homeownership programs and services, we also offer Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention support for residents of Minneapolis, and health and safety repair services for existing low-income homeowners in the Twin Cities metro area through our A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) program.
