Beyond all else, our highest priority is the health and safety of our entire Twin Cities Habitat community— staff, clients, volunteers, supporters, and all our neighbors across Minnesota.
As part of the Habitat family, you understand the power of community action. Thank you for your continued support during this time and for playing your part in promoting the well-being of our entire community. If it's within your capacity and you'd like to financially support Habitat through this difficult time, you can make a donation here.

All client services are virtual until further notice. We are committed to your partnership with us and to supporting your family through this difficult time.
Current Habitat Homeowners
The COVID-19 Housing Assistance Program is now accepting applications. This program provides housing assistance payments to help prevent eviction, homelessness and maintain housing stability for eligible renters and 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 email@example.com or Bethany Nagan, Mortgage Portfolio Manager, at 612-305-7120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

All in-person volunteer opportunities are suspended until further notice. This includes all homebuilding, home repair, warehouse, and ReStore volunteer opportunities for groups, individuals, and regular and skilled volunteers.
If you were planning to volunteer with Habitat this winter, consider supporting your neighbors with a donation. Your generous support is essential to keep our work moving forward so more families in our community can experience the safety and stability of a home they own.
All events will be virtual for the foreseeable future. Special Builds may continue in-person with modifications. See below for details on a few upcoming events.
Both ReStore locations are open (New Brighton and Minneapolis) and operating with added safety protocols. Please wear a mask and social distance when shopping, or donating.
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore is adjusting its hours of operation on Tuesdays through Fridays starting December 1 and until further notice. The 2-hour opening delay was in response to the suspension of all in-person volunteer opportunities. This is one way Twin Cities Habitat is playing our part to help slow the spread of the virus and protect our staff and community.
ReStore relies heavily on volunteers to help operate the store, so without them, staff will use two hours each morning to restock and price items before opening at noon. Saturday hours remain the same.
For hours and directions, please visit the ReStore website.
Our office is closed to the public until further notice. Select staff have very 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.
