Habitat for Humanity of West Central Minnesota

Organization Description: 

In 1993, a group of concerned citizens emerged from Kandiyohi County to address the housing needs of low income families and formed Habitat for Humanity of West Central Minnesota (HFHWCM). Since its inception, four additional counties have joined the affiliate—Chippewa, Meeker, Renville, and Swift Counties. Just as the mission of Habitat for Humanity International is to eliminate sub-standard housing across the planet, the mission of HFHWCM is to eliminate sub-standard housing in our affiliate area. This is accomplished by partnering with qualifying families, working side by side with them, teaching them home building and maintenance skills, and then selling the homes to them at no profit and 0% interest. The mortgage payments we receive from our partner families go back into the fund for humanity to build more homes in our communities.
