A Homeownership Option for Generations
Over the past twenty years, Homes Within Reach (HWR) has worked to fulfill its mission to transform lives through homeownership. HWR has helped over 200 families purchase homes in 14 Hennepin County suburban communities. While growth in the number of communities and families served by HWR continues to increase, our mission becomes harder with the rising costs of homes, high cost of rehabilitation, and escalating demand for affordable housing.
Many of the homeowners HWR has assisted, provide essential services to our communities. Our homeowners are; teachers, health care support staff, municipal workers, retail staff, office personnel, food prep staff, customer service representatives, our friends, family and neighbors. The HWR Community Land Trust program provides these buyers the ability to purchase a home in the communities where they work and live!
HWR homeowners have shared their stories of how they were able to purchase their homes and the impact that owning their own home has on their lives. The following are few of those stories.
Its homeowner stories like these that motivate HWR to continue creating and preserving unique long-term affordable homeownership opportunities for working Minnesotans who provide essential services to Hennepin County suburban communities. Over the years HWR has seen first-hand how homeownership stabilizes lives, enables greater community and economic participation, and builds assets to pass on to the next generation.
