We recently held a Stories of Home Contest where we asked Twin Cities Habitat homeowners to share a story answering the question: "What does your home mean to you?" Here's one of the stories in the homeowner's own voice. Story and photos shared with their permission.

Written by Ana B., Habitat Homeowner since 2017.

First off, let me start by introducing myself and my family. My name is Ana. I work at Hennepin County Medical Center, and I am a mom to 3 beautiful kids. Eli is 15 and a sophomore in high school, loves to play the guitar and piano, and is an amazing older brother. Kenndra is 13 and in the 7th grade, and she loves to spend her free time with her baby brother and driving her older brother crazy! And when she is not doing that, she spends time in her room drawing and reading books. Myles is 1 and full of energy and keeps all of us on our feet, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

House Month Volunteers are individuals that choose to commit a significant portion of volunteer time to a single home's progress over the summer. They volunteer three days a week for a month, and get to see a house become a home for a family partnering with Twin Cities Habitat.

This past summer, Twin Cities Habitat was approached by the ITS (Intro to Success) Festival’s team to partner on their annual event that brings young artists and entrepreneurs of color to explore opportunities that will help them excel in their creative field.

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is committed to making affordable homeownership a reality for generations to come. Many Habitat supporters choose to include a donation in their estate plans as a way to create long-term impact. When you make a donation to Twin Cities Habitat in your will or trust, you make the transformative power of home part of your legacy.

Leaving a legacy is easier than ever before thanks to our FreeWill online tool. With this fast, convenient, and secure platform, you can create a will, advance care directive, and more. There is no cost – we offer this tool as a gift to you.

We all have our own stories of home. This series shares those stories from Habitat staff. We'll explore questions like: what does home mean to us? How did we find a stable home? How do our stories inform our work? And how do Habitat's mission, vision, and values resonate with our experiences?
