This year, Twin Cities Habitat was proud to again join forces with the Homes for All MN alliance to secure bonds for housing!

Thank you, Housing Heroes, for all your hard work to generate bipartisan support for housing. Housing Heroes contacted their legislators more than 3,200 times through legislative visits, a press conference rally, three Habitat Off the Hill events, as well as numerous emails, phone calls, postcards, and letters.
