About Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical, grassroots, Christian organization, dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Habitat partners with homeowner families, the members of the local community, and volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable houses. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit, through no-interest loans.

To qualify for a Habitat home, families must currently live in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortgage and be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Before moving into a Habitat home, families must contribute 300 hours of “sweat-equity” to the building of the home and must make a modest down payment.

Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties built its first home in Winona County in 1994. Since then, forty six homes have been built.



Volunteers interested in helping with Habitat for Humanity projects or offering donations may call the Habitat for Humanity–Winona County office at 507-457-0003 or visit our website at www.habitatwinona.org.
