Experience the build, thinking, and action that go into Housing Matters!

While Habitat is best known for creating and preserving homeownership, our mission also includes creating public awareness of the importance of housing to our community. A typical day on the construction site offers volunteers the chance to learn about housing issues and be a part of the solution in a unique and interactive environment.

Build. Think. Act

An on-site service learning experience. A typical day includes:


Work on a Habitat home and gain a deeper understanding of how Habitat works.


While on site, explore housing issues through short activities that get people thinking and talking about the challenges and solutions. We know that Habitat alone cannot meet the needs of the ½ million people with serious housing problems in the Twin Cities. Creating stable healthy communities requires people to learn about a variety of solutions.


It is possible to create a community where everyone has a stable place they can call home. You will find out what tools are available to stay involved and continue to support affordable housing.
