This season, Urban Homeworks is adapting to the world around us to prioritize the health and safety of our community. We usually deliver Thanksgiving baskets to Urban Homeworks residents as an expression of gratitude, but this year we are emailing gift cards. We have a goal to raise $4,000 to provide around 130 families at least $30 in visa gift cards. Will you join us in spreading gratitude this season and #giftcardforward?

We transform, redeem & engage.

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.
