We make home a better place.
We invite you to celebrate two
meaningful numbers with us this fall – our 275th Community Land
Trust (CLT) house and our 400th CLT homeowner!
“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I, a single mother, would be so fortunate to purchase my very own home …”
Tokiwa Heger, a patient care coordinator at Essentia Health, became owner of the 275th CLT home in One Roof’s portfolio this fall.
“One Roof Community Housing gave me the opportunity to be independent and I am very grateful.” – Tokiwa Heger
275! – That’s the number of permanently affordable homes we have built or acquired & renovated since 1990.
Our Community Land Trust program allows One Roof to keep these homes permanently affordable to qualified buyers. When homeowners decide to move on to market rate homes or other opportunities, our CLT homes are then resold to another qualifying household.
We are grateful for people like you who appreciate what making home a better place can mean for individuals and families across our Twin Ports community.
Thank you for your good words and generosity. With your support One Roof’s programs and services continue to grow, expand and help more and more people locally.
400! – That’s the number of households (with our 125th resale of a CLT home) who have become Land Trust homeowners.
This fall we welcomed Amy Kokotovich as our 400th Land Trust homeowner!
“I have been living with my parents for six and a half years with my two girls,” states Amy; who works for Lake Superior Community Health Center.
“It feels great to have my own house. Houses are really expensive to get. Even to rent a place is expensive. I now have my own space and I can actually decorate the girls’ rooms the way I want. The girls love having their own rooms!”
At One Roof we are privileged to hear powerful heart-felt stories like Tokiwa’s and Amy’s on a daily basis. Individuals and families, looking to make a difference for themselves and their loved ones, becoming informed, engaged and working hard to make their lives better.
People helping each other – that’s what you are supporting at One Roof!
The work we do in building and preserving affordable housing locally can be pretty big, challenging and heady stuff for our small non-profit. The partnerships we establish with individuals, businesses, foundations and government are crucial to our success.
We invite you to join us in creating opportunities to make home a better place for individuals and families across the region.
