Changing Lives

The impact study done by Habitat Minnesota in 2012. This video shows the impact Habitat for Humanity has across the state using the results from the 2012 Homewoner Impact Pilot Study with interviews conducted with homewoners.

This video was created in 2012 to celebrate the more than 2,000 families in Minesota whose lives where changed by Habitat for Humanity; families who no longer live in poverty housing, and children who now have a safe, decent place to call home.

Effectively Living and Working Within a Diverse World-- Training Seminar

North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity and Habitat Minnesota are hosting the EFFECTIVELY  LIVING AND WORKING WITHIN A DIVERSE WORLD training session led by Jodi Pfarr. This unique training will allow participants to become conscience of and better understand their personal experiences while also being open to the complexities of others experiences. Participants leave with a very practical understanding of how to work effectively with diverse populations– whether that diversity is economic, racial, gender, etc.– to help them better manage,  supervise, or volunteer within their organization or communities.

Since 2011, Jodi Pfarr has been conducting impactful seminars leaving people learning and laughing. She brings audiences the knowledge she has gained from years of hands-on experience within the criminal justice system, social services, religious institutions and nonprofit organizations. This vast work experience enriches her presentation with stories from the trenches that audiences often find relatable and transferable into their own lives.
