Brief Description: North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity is working with students from Hibbing High School and Minnesota North College to provide a hands-on learning approach that also develops affordable housing. Students use the single-family home build site as their classroom, learning valuable, lifelong building skills, while partnering with a family to build an affordable home. Upon completion, the home will be sold to a Habitat partner family with payments, including escrow for taxes and insurance, not to exceed 25% of their income. North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity works with families and individuals who have a need for affordable housing and are willing to invest sweat equity into building theirs and others’ homes. As an Equal Housing Opportunity organization, Habitat serves buyers who fall within 30% to 60% of the area’s average median income (AMI), impacting those with a critical need for housing in our communities.
