In 2012, the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity was looking to build a new headquarters building to house its staff, coordinate volunteers and provide space for educational and advocacy programs. The new construction would be located in St. Paul, in a central location accessible by the city’s light rail transport system. The new facility would provide the organization with an enhanced base of operations through which it could offer more support to families in need. But that new capability would come at a cost: a total of $9.5 million would be needed to build the Twin Cities Habitat’s new home. And in making that investment, Habitat leaders were determined not to compromise the organization’s existing programs and services. Groundbreaking took place in May 2013. The new headquarters facility, consisting of more than 27,000-square-feet of office and meeting space, was completed in early 2014. And true to Habitat for Humanity’s commitment to green building and making the most of recycled materials, it makes generous use of recycled windows, doors, carpets and other components.
