Youth and Families Young people play a vital role in the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity

We have made it a priority to provide a range of service opportunities for youth to be involved. There are many ways that youth can partner with Twin cities Habitat for Humanity including being an advocate, fundraiser, educator, and hands-on volunteer. Volunteering builds self-esteem, teaches program participants new skills and develops a life-long spirit of service.

Individual Youth Volunteer Opportunities

In order to further our mission and educate youth on issues of affordable housing, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity offers opportunities for schools, faith based youth groups, youth-focused community groups, individuals, and families to get involved with Habitat.



We're best known for our Homeownership program where volunteers build and rehab simple, quality homes in partnership with low-income families and the community.  We sell the homes with an affordable mortgage, making a 30-year commitment to each new homeowner and the community in which they live.  We also have a Home Repair program, which helps low-income homeowners repair and maintain their homes.
