Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity has a long record of leadership in green building. It's better for the environment, our homebuyers (who save money on utilities), our community, and us as an organization because it forces us to work efficiently in everything we do. Every new Twin Cities Habitat home is built to meet the LEED Silver standards. We are proud to be the largest builder of ENERGY STAR homes in Minnesota. In 2013, we built our first-ever net zero energy home in the Hawthorne EcoVillage in North Minneapolis (pictured). Learn more about ways we build green into every home.
While Twin Cities Habitat has been incorporating green building techniques in our home production for more than a decade, we have also taken on a few LEED certified homebuilding projects to challenge and expand our capabilities in sustainable development. These projects help us explore and further develop best practices in green building and sustainable development, with the intention of implementing those construction practices across the Twin Cities Habitat homebuilding program.
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity strives to do the most good with every single dollar entrusted to us. Rest assured that a gift to support our mission creates an immediate and significant impact for the families and communities we partner with.
Every $1 you donate results in almost $2 of economic activity in our community.
