Urban Homeworks catalyzes powerful people, using equitable housing as a platform to build community.
We transform vacant or distressed properties into dignified, healthy homes in neighborhoods in Minneapolis and St. Paul, redeeming real estate so that the community can catalyze change agents and leaders.
Our People Oriented Development (POD) model engages people in determining what their neighborhoods look like, catalyzes them to become powerful advocates, and promotes active neighboring. This work helps reverse deeply entrenched inequities allowing for solutions to emerge organically from within neighborhoods.
The mission of Urban Homeworks is to perpetuate the hope of Jesus Christ through innovative community development.
