Haiti partnership with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity International has been working in Haiti since the mid-1980s. The need for housing intensified dramatically following the 2010 earthquake that leveled more than 100,000 homes. The housing for more than 2 million people was damaged by the quake. Habitat set a goal of serving 50,000 in 5 years. A lot of work is being done, but because of the situation on the ground, Twin Cities Habitat is not leading volunteer trips to Haiti at this time.

Barry and Sharon Mason, two of Twin Cities Habitat’s long-time supporters, took part in the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Haiti in 2011. They joined 400 volunteers working in a community that was decimated by the 2010 earthquake. They wrote several moving stories about their time in Haiti.
