Twin Cities Habitat works in partnership with families, volunteers, donors and communities to build decent, affordable homes and provide low-interest, fixed-rate mortgages to low and moderate-income families with the dream of homeownership.
The ReStore is a home improvement outlet open to the public. Shop for quality donated home furnishings, furniture, and building supplies at a fraction of the original cost. All revenue supports Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s work building, rehabbing and repairing homes for hard-working local families.
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK), Habitat's home repair program, helps preserve homeownership by partnering with homeowners struggling to maintain their home. When basic expenses exceed income month after month, home maintenance is the usual casualty. Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions.
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is one of only three Habitat chapters in the country that has a Foreclosure Prevention Program and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program is the main foreclosure prevention counseling provider for the city of Minneapolis and one of the busiest foreclosure prevention agencies in the state of Minnesota.
We provide counseling, advocacy and referrals free of charge to families who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments, property taxes, or HOA dues. Since 1993 when the program started, MFPP has served more than 6,500 families. In cases where we cannot assist in preventing foreclosure or tax forfeiture, we can help connect homeowners with resources to ease their transition to new housing.
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Initiative supports local Veterans through Habitat programs, and connects service members 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. – less
