Construction Volunteers are essential for helping Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity achieve its mission of bringing people together to create, preserve, and promote affordable homeownership and advance racial equity in housing.

Construction experience is useful, but not required! Hands-on training will be provided by Habitat Staff on site. It's easy to get signed up - visit our volunteer scheduling web page at https://tchabitat.volunteerhub.com/
Construction Volunteers must commit to a minimum of one full day (8:30am-3:30pm). For safety reasons, children under the age of 16 are not allowed on site. All volunteers under the age of 18 must have adult supervision. Youth ages 16-17 are required to have one adult (21 years of age or older) for up to four youth.

About Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity

Location:

1954 University Avenue West, St. Paul, MN 55104, US

Mission Statement

To eliminate poverty housing from the Twin Cities area and to make decent, affordable shelter for all people a matter of conscience.

Description

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity builds homes in partnership with families who demonstrate need and willingness to work with Habitat for Humanity by helping to construct their own housing. With a safe, decent and affordable home to call their own,families are then free to concentrate on parenting, employment, education and community engagement. Each Habitat build provides a setting for people from all walks of life to work side by side in partnership with future homeowners--finding common ground as they create quality, affordable housing.

Twin Cities Habitat relies on volunteer labor and tax deductible contributions of cash, materials, professional services and property to build simple, decent homes with low-incomes families. Working under the principle that no profit should be gained from assisting those in need, Habitat for Humanity charges no interest on the mortgages that it issues to homebuyers. In operation since 1985, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity has built more than 650 homes in the seven-county metro area.

We manage additional homeownership preservation programs that help low-income families keep their homes. The Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program offers assistance to residents of Minneapolis, providing intensive in-person counseling, phone counseling and referrals, negotiation with lenders, and financial assistance. A Brush With Kindness is a neighborhood outreach program offering painting, landscaping, and minor repairs to homes for qualifying low-income homeowners.
