More about Habitat for Humanity

2017 is the 26th year St. Andrew’s has helped a family achieve home ownership. Habitat for Humanity is not a charity program. Homeowners make their down payment with 300-500 hours of “sweat equity”, and then pay a zero interest mortgage for the actual cost of the house. Homeowners are carefully selected from needy applicants; only one in ten qualified applicants is offered one of the 60 homes built each year by volunteers and Habitat families here in the Twin Cities.
