Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota (Habitat Minnesota) is a statewide support organization for Minnesota affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International. We provide resources to the 25 Minnesota affiliates to advance their work to create and preserve affordable homeownership in partnership with working families.
Habitat Minnesota was created in 1997 initially as a financial intermediary, providing centralized distribution of capital to affiliates. Today, Habitat Minnesota offers a range of programs, including resource development, advocacy, training, and networking.
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, community and hope.
Through advocacy, collaboration, and leadership, Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota advances the work of Minnesota’s Habitat for Humanity affiliates to create and preserve affordable homeownership.
Habitat for Humanity affiliates are independently run nonprofit organizations at the local level providing safe, decent affordable housing for hardworking low income families. Each affiliate coordinates all aspects of a Habitat for Humanity home, including fundraising, building, partner family selection and mortgage servicing. Find your local Minnesota Habitat office.
Habitat ReStores are retail outlets where quality used and surplus building materials are sold at a fraction of normal prices. Proceeds from ReStores help local affiliates fund the construction of Habitat houses within the community. Several affiliates in Minnesota operate successful ReStores— raising enough funds to build several additional houses per year. Find your local Minnesota ReStore.
For 44 years, Habitat has been a place where people of all backgrounds, faiths and races have come together. By engaging our mission, and building together, we have shown the power of our connection with others. We can be the light of the world, the city on the hill, letting our light shine before others.
― Jonathan T.M. Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International
