The past two weeks were filled with food, family, friends, and coloring as Twin Cities Habitat supporters celebrated over ten partnering families starting a new and exciting chapter of homeownership.

On Monday, June 18, eight families gathered at the Habitat office to dedicate their new homes. The program ended with great conversation and fantastic food!

On Wednesday, June 20, the celebration of two neighboring Habitat families and our partnership with Wells Fargo was the perfect way to end the evening.
