Home

SCHFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.

Hammers

Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

News

SCHFH is currently building it's 13th house in partnership with the Owatonna Rotary Club. Construction did not begin until late in the fall and so the wintry weather has temporairly stalled progress. We will be calling volunteers in our data base to schedule them for work. The maximum number of workers needed on site will usually never be more than twenty. If you want to work but haven't been called please give us a call (507.446.0112)

Our Board members for 2007-2008 are Dan Branstad, President, Phil Mickelson, Treasurer, and Nancy Bokelmann, Berlyn Staska, Kyro Lantsberger, Troy Klecker, Mary Peterson, Roger Sorenson, Alonso Hernandez Glen Meger, Bix Brooks,Steve Olsen and John Holland. Jim Gauss is our ED.
