Current Habitat Homeowners
Habitat is here to support you. If you are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 and have concerns about paying your mortgage with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity or TCHFH Lending, Inc., please contact: AmeriNat at (800) 943-1988 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Jesse Lindsey, Homeownership Preservation Assistant, at 612-305-7237 or email@example.com.
We know some Habitat homeowners have received misleading offers to help with mortgage assistance or foreclosure prevention from other parties that are not Habitat. Some of you have also received calls offering to purchase your home. Please do not respond to these offers. Working directly with Habitat as your lender is your best option.

Volunteer opportunities have resumed, including homebuilding, home repair, warehouse, and ReStore volunteer opportunities for individuals.
Effective October 4, all volunteers must indicate that they have either been vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19 within 48 hours of each time on site. Volunteers will indicate how they are complying with this policy upon registering for a volunteer opportunity. By showing up to your volunteer shift, you are indicating that you are fully vaccinated or have tested negative within 48 hours of your shift. If you are unwilling or unable to follow this policy, we will cancel your volunteer shift(s) and hope you will volunteer with us in the future.
In addition, masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status. Masks are encouraged when working outdoors, but are optional for fully vaccinated individuals. If social distancing is not possible, masks are required. Masks required at all times for those unvaccinated. Read volunteer COVID-19 safety protocols.
Some in-person events will be allowed, but many will continue to be virtual. Special Builds may continue in-person with modifications. See below for a few upcoming events:
Both ReStore locations are open (New Brighton and Minneapolis) and operating with added safety protocols. Masks are required indoors.
Our office is closed to the public until further notice. Staff have limited access to the office building following strict safety protocols.
These are uncharted waters and uncertain times, and we greatly appreciate your continued support, patience, and trust as we navigate this together.
Every day, you rely on people just like those who partner with us. Especially during this global emergency. Our clients are nurses, food service workers, bus drivers, airport employees. Some have seen hours slashed or wages eliminated. Others are working double-time to keep our community safe. The effects of this crisis will have ripple effects for many months to come.
In a time when very little is certain, you can build stability and certainty for your neighbors with a gift to Habitat.
