Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, Inc.

Mission Statement

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

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In FY2017, 92 partner families either bought a home with Habitat or had critical repairs completed on their home through our programs. Also, 1,500 families attended homeownership orientation sessions to learn about our process and understand the program and financial requirements. 266 families participated in one-on-one financial coaching to become mortgage-ready. 140 of those have completed coaching and become financially mortgage-ready; the remainder continue to meet with financial coaches. We also launched a new banking partnership with Bremer Bank to finance 500 mortgages originated by TCHFH Lending, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. This partnership means that Habitat can more than double the number of families served over the next 4 years and donor contributions go further to help keep homes affordable for families.
