Through shelter, Habitat creates opportunities for low-income families and individuals to help themselves.
Habitat builds homes.
Since 2000, Habitat for Humanity has built or improved 20 homes in Southwest Minnesota. We serve Lyon and Redwood County.
Habitat builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Three criteria are considered when selecting homeowners: need for housing, ability to pay and willingness to partner. In addition, homeowners must have lived or worked in the county of service for at least one year. Homeowners typically invest at least 200 hours of sweat equity throughout the homebuilding process.
Habitat homes are a hand up.
Homeowners make regular monthly mortgage payments, which are recycled to help build more Habitat homes.
Habitat builds sustainability.
The typical new house has 1,350 square feet of finished living space. Most homes have 3-4 bedrooms and one bathroom. Habitat uses green building practices to make these homes and their utilities affordable.
Habitat reuses at the ReStore.
The ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement store that sells donated building materials, furniture, appliances and home décor. Profits support the construction of affordable housing in our service area.
Habitat builds with volunteers.
Whether you're framing a wall, helping with a fundraiser or assisting customers in the ReStore, every volunteer makes a difference!
