Building Unity in Central Minnesota
In keeping with tradition, this will be a year of coming together at Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity. It's a time of sharing dreams, building relationships, and working elbow-to-elbow alongside our neighbors to create a community we can all thrive in.
Together, people of all ages, races, religions, and backgrounds will work side-by-side to build 4 new affordable homes that will hold lasting memories for the families who purchase our homes. These homes will stand as permanent reminders that we all share the common desire to belong and bloom where we are planted.
New doors of opportunity are opening in 2017, but we need you now more than ever. How can we count on you to help?
We continue to work with local, hard-working families to help make their dreams of homeownership a reality. This winter, four new partner families have started their journeys to become Habitat homeowners.
The end of the journey not only means purchasing a home - it also means safety, stability and security. Homeownership allows families the space to eat dinner as a family. One of our partner families doesn't have the kitchen space in the apartment to allow the whole family to eat together.
Homeownership enables families to have financial freedom. Partner families sometimes pay up to 60% of their income on housing. Habitat houses are purchased with a zero-interest mortgage at no more than 30% of the family income.
Homeownership means a lot to each and every one of our partner families.
We need your help to make these families' dreams, and the many more hardworking families in Central Minnesota, come true. Your gift, of any size, will help make dreams come true.
