Best Practices Award: Sustainable Building
North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity was recently presented with the 'Best Practices Award' from Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota for our sustainable building. On average, our homeowners pay only $60 for their heating bills in the winter! Thank you to all of our supporters and partners. Without you, we would not be able to build sustainably. THANK YOU!
Below is a video by Habitat Minnesota explaining all the ways we are building sustainably.
The impact study done by Habitat Minnesota in 2012. This video shows the impact Habitat for Humanity has across the state using the results from the 2012 Homewoner Impact Pilot Study with interviews conducted with homewoners.
This video was created in 2012 to celebrate the more than 2,000 families in Minesota whose lives where changed by Habitat for Humanity; families who no longer live in poverty housing, and children who now have a safe, decent place to call home.
Habitat For Humanity in North St. Louis County, Minnesota welcomes you!
