Habitat for Humanity of South Central Minnesota is a non-profit, Christian housing ministry dedicated to building simple, decent, and affordable housing with and for families in need.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments form a revolving fund to build more Habitat homes. Habitat homes in South Central Minnesota on average cost $100,000.
Families in need of decent shelter apply to South Central Minnesota by calling or stopping by our office for an application at 1730 Bassett Dr., Mankato MN 56001, 507-388-2081. The affiliate’s family selection committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the loan based on financial guidelines. Every Habitat affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing the families who qualify for a Habitat home.
The Habitat ReStore sells new and gently used building supplies to the public at a fraction of retail prices. Items include cabinets, windows, doors, plumbing, appliances, lumber, tools and the list goes on! The money generated from the ReStore supports Habitat in building more homes for families in need. ReStores divert tons of material from landfills as well as make home improvements more affordable. Recycle, Reuse, ReStore
