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 winning stories in the homeowner's own voice. Story and photos shared with their permission.

About Laurie

I have lived in the Twin Cities all my life.  I'm a facilitator, most recently in educating adults about diversity and inclusion, which fits perfectly with Habitat for Humanity's mission of providing homes for families regardless of who they are or what they believe.

From June 17-20, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's Builder’s Circle came out to St. Paul for our annual Builder’s Circle Build to see first-hand the direct impact of their generosity. Our Builder’s Circle members are individuals or families who donate $1,000 or more annually, already leading the way in philanthropy, and this week they got to take a hands-on approach to giving by volunteering on site.

Many of us take different journeys to arrive at Habitat. Prior to my working at Habitat I was a Contract Analyst in the Group Contracts department of Securian Financial. Insurance might not be the most exciting of industries to work in, but there are several similarities between building homes and life insurance.

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is extremely lucky to have our Women Builders on site during the summer swinging hammers and building homes. Last summer, around 1,000 women build volunteers worked together to make a difference as change makers in the community.

To celebrate National Homeownership Month, we're sharing educational resources for homebuyers and homeowners written by some of our closest partners. This post was provided by Bremer Bank, our major mortgage partner. Bremer has committed to buying nearly $100 million in mortgages, unlocking opportunities for hundreds of local families.
