Circle of affirmation: people gathered in a circle sharing positive, feel good, supportive words. If you've never been in a circle of affirmation, it is one of the most gratifying experiences. And on Thursday, May 11th, Habitat Homeowner Nasra and her family celebrated their home dedication with one large, loving, circle of affirmation, leaving everyone in attendance smiling.  

On a beautiful April Saturday morning, the energy outside of the four townhomes was electric, as a crowd began to gather outside of four new Twin Cities Habitat townhomes in Hugo. There were Habitat homebuyers, families, friends, volunteers, sponsors, city officials, and Habitat staff, all coming together for one purpose: to celebrate four new Habitat homeowners.  

The last Saturday in February was filled with sunshine, smiles, and support as Terfa and Bontu celebrated their new home in Saint Paul! The living room filled quickly with family members, friends, volunteers, and sponsors eager to congratulate the new homeowners. Terfa and Bontu could not contain their kids' excitement as they ran around embracing the space they would soon call home. 

On the most gorgeous Minnesota February Saturday in memory, families, neighbors, volunteers, and donors came together to dedicate two Habitat homes in Blaine. Kids were running with new friends to the playground next-door, adults were unloading trays of breads, vegetables, and stews on the table, and there was a lot of laughter as everyone gathered in the main room for the dedication ceremony. Win Curtiss, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity Dedications Committee member, smiled around at everyone as he gave the welcome.
