VETERANS INITIATIVE SERVING THOSE WHO SERVED

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Initiative supports local Veterans through Habitat programs, and connects servicemembers more deeply with their communities. 

In 2012, Twin Cities Habitat became the first nonprofit in the state to acquire Yellow Ribbon status – which means we are accredited by the VA to provide services to military families. Learn more at www.BeyondTheYellowRibbon.Org
