More about Habitat for Humanity

2022 is the 31st year St. Andrew’s has helped a family achieve home ownership. St. Andrew’s has a reputation of providing the most volunteers and sponsorship dollars of any church in the Twin Cities. Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes. Homeowners pay a mortgage with payments set for 30% of their income. Homeowners are carefully selected from applicants; only one in ten qualified applicants is offered one of the 50-60 homes built each year by volunteers and Habitat families here in the Twin Cities.

Your Prayers and Financial Support is Critical

We are asked to raise $30,000 to pay for the materials we will use during our weeks of building.  If you give directly to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, please ask that your donation be credited to St. Andrew’s.  Go to saintandrews.org/give, and choose Habitat from the dropdown menu.

Here is what your gift to Habitat will buy:
$10 = Box of Nails
$100 = Kitchen Sink
$150 = Front Door
$1000 = Wallboard
PRICELESS = Building a house and new friendships with fellow volunteers to help a family get a decent and affordable home.
