North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity


Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

We have been building stability, strength, and self reliance through shelter in North St. Louis County, Minnesota, since 1995.

Habitat homes currently under construction

Teelyn Minkel’s home in Buhl was dedicated on August 13, 2023.

Our 2023 construction is underway, and our final 2022 home is almost complete! This year, five more households are beginning their journey toward sustainable homeownership. Get involved with these projects and check out the current projects link to meet our families. Interested in volunteering? Sign up to help out HERE.

Building the Future with Habitat keynote speaker

Listen to Habitat homeowner Autumn Ritchie share her journey to homeownership and how owning a home has impacted her and her family’s lives. She said, “I look forward to seeing what other opportunities the future holds that will be possible because I decided to apply for a Habitat home. This opportunity, which was afforded to us by you, is not just a house—it’s a home. A blessing. A safe haven.”
