Habitat For Humanity in North St. Louis County, Minnesota Welcomes You!

Habitat Needs Your Support! 

Our Neighbors Need Affordable Homes

The need for decent affordable housing continues across North St. Louis County.  The 2016 Out of Reach report, which is produced annually by the National Low income Housing Coalition, affirms that Minnesota residents in every corner of the state are facing significant housing hardships.  “Minnesota must face the growing crisis of families being unable to cover housing costs,” said Chip Halbach, Executive Director of the Minnesota Housing Partnership.  “The price we will pay for our inaction will be seen across the age spectrum, from school children in unstable homes falling behind in their studies to senior citizens foregoing medicine and food to retain their shelter.”  Find out more about our neighbors’ need for housing

 

Habitat Needs Your Support

We partner with communities, churches, businesses, organizations and individuals to make home ownership a reality for families in need.  Without your support, our mission to help families in need of a simple, decent and affordabe home would never be attained.  There are many ways you can support Habitat:

·         Pray – Please continue to partner with us in prayer as we continue to serve families in North St. Louis County.

·         Volunteer – We value your time and talent!  Have building experience and want to put your skills to good use?  No building experience?  That’s okay, we provide the     building know-how!  We have other opportunities to volunteer if building is not in your bucket list.  Sign up for our “Volunteer Updates.”

·         Donate – Your donations matter!  In 2015, 92.4 cents of every dollar went into building homes.  Learn more about "How to Donate.

You Are Making a Difference

Our vision is simple, “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.”  What does having a decent place to live do for families?  According to a Wilder Research survey of all Minnesota Habitat families, the impact of a simple, decent and affordable home, which the families helped build, are many.  The families experience better health, better performance in school and less reliance on government assistance.  They also feel better about themselves and feel more positive about their future.   Check out the many ways you are "Making A Difference" in families lives.

 

 

What It's All About

In July 2015, Melissa Wallace and family closed on their new home in Mt. Iron.  Melissa spoke at her home dedication and this is truly "what it's all about!"
