At this week's Habitat for Humanity International Conference, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity received a genuine honor: we were selected as one of 23 organizations recognized by Habitat for Humanity International as an “Affiliate of Distinction.” Out of over 1,300 Habitat affiliates nation-wide, Twin Cities Habitat is the only affiliate recognized from Minnesota, and one of only three affiliates recognized of comparable size.

We’re only a few weeks away from the biggest party of the year — Hard Hat & Black Tie, one of the premier Twin Cities galas! Here at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, we’re gearing up for this exceptional evening of raising resources for our work and sharing our mission with our guests. Every year the auction is a highlight of this fundraising event and this year is no different. With the help of numerous generous donors, we’ve gathered fabulous live and silent auction items. Check out this live auction preview of some of what we have in store so you can get ready to start bidding! You can also view our full silent auction catalog here.

Not attending the event but want to bid on a live auction item? Contact Bryanna Nagan via email or at 612-305-7108 to place a remote bid.

Those efforts shuttled him between educational opportunities in the U.S. and grass roots program implementation in his homeland. Eventually Stephen’s journey led him to Minnesota, where he helped develop and implement minority-focused financial assistance programs for homeownership in small towns across Minnesota.
