Help Support Our Work

The Minnesota Homeownership Center promotes and advances successful homeownership in Minnesota with an emphasis on serving those facing the greatest barriers to homeownership: lower income households and communities of color.

The sad fact is, our state has one of the largest racial homeownership gaps in the country. This gap is a major factor at the heart of the economic disparities keeping us stuck in an inequitable world. The Minnesota Homeownership Center recognizes the tremendous importance of equitable access to ownership, and the role that successful homeownership plays in facilitating thriving, vibrant communities. People and families rely on long-term homeownership as a key asset for building wealth, and communities of successful homeowners are safer, healthier and more civically engaged than majority-renter communities.

We’ve been working for 30 years to make successful homeownership possible for families across Minnesota that face barriers in the conventional mortgage market – families like Jacob’s and Namia’s, who shared their family’s journey from renting to homeownership education and advising to purchasing their own home in a compelling Star Tribune story in 2018. We welcome donations to help advance this work. If you have any questions about supporting the Center, please contact us.
