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.

Fix it and forget it is a popular saying, but Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity wants everyone who came to, or heard about, our annual Fix It Fair to Fix It and Remember. While volunteers helped repair small, non-functioning household items for anyone who brought them to the fair, the event also served as a way to remind people of the mission of Habitat and all the ways we carry that mission out.

The year is almost over, but there’s still time to make a donation this year and deduct from your 2012 taxes. Tax-deductible donations effectively reduce your annual taxable income, increasing your return in April, or lowering the amount you owe to the IRS. You can think of it as doing good for your community now, and getting an unexpected return in April.  

Boarded up windows, (sheriff’s notice taped to a door), abandoned houses, empty neighborhoods – we all know the signs of foreclosure in our community. Even as the economy starts its slow recovery, however, the crisis is far from over. Fortunately, Twin Cities Habitat’s Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program and other community organizations have been able to help many of these families get back on their feet. “We were saved, as much as our house”
