Summer can be busy, and not every Habitat supporter can spend a day volunteering on a Habitat build or home repair site. That's why we've put together a list of fun ways you can support Habitat's mission and enjoy our Minnesota summer, too! https://www.tchabitat.org/blog/support-habitat-this-summer

Minnesota suffers from some of the worst racial disparities in housing in the nation. A long history of both overt and subtle racist practices got us here. In 1968, Walter Mondale, who was representing Minnesota in the US Senate at the time, co-authored the Fair Housing Act (FHA). It was signed into law a week after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. For the first time in American law, discrimination was expressly forbidden in housing. But, 50 years on we are still a long way from what Mondale says is the FHA’s ultimate goal of an integrated society. He spoke about the FHA’s legacy from the offices of Dorsey & Whitney LLP, where he is Senior Counsel.

It’s been a busy year here at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. 2017 was a year of innovation with one big goal in mind: 500 families buying affordable, Habitat homes over four years.

With so many changes, you may have missed a highlight or two. As we head into 2018, here’s a recap of major happenings from the past year!

Coupled with the excitement of volunteering for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is fear that I’ll screw up. Which I do. Quite often. In any other job, I would have been “let go” long ago. But my supervisor Dave Madzo grins and bears my presence every Wednesday and I am, by fits and starts, learning valuable skills.

"I spent 40-plus years as a journalist and then as a communications executive, and, without question, working on a house for a needy family is much more fulfilling."
