Be a part of World Habitat Day - Monday, October 1
The need for safe, decent housing affects everyone in the world. That's why the United Nations in 1985 designated the first Monday in October as World Habitat Day. The theme this year is Many homes, one community. This theme fits perfectly with the work of Twin Cities Habitat and all its supporters. We have been focusing our outreach and community development efforts in St. Paul on the Frogtown and Rondo neighborhoods. We are building homes, repairing homes, and building and repairing community. Our success is the neighborhood’s success. We are making the idea of Many homes, one community into the reality on the ground.
Twin Cities Habitat is holding several events around World Habitat Day that you can be a part of:
- Saturday September 29 at 10am: Join us for the Dedication of a Habitat home built and sponsored by Holy Hammers volunteers at 418 Edmund Avenue in St. Paul. Email email@example.com for more information.
- Friday Sept. 28 - Sunday Sept. 30: International Day of Prayer and Action for Human Habitat. Faith-based groups from around the Twin Cities will pray for, and reflect on, those in need of shelter. Learn more about this unifying event and download prayers that can be used in your place of worship.
- Monday October 1: Volunteers will work on a Critical Home Repair project in St. Paul. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or click the link below to find out about all our volunteer opportunities.
- Monday October 1 at 7pm: The Twin Cities Habitat Book/Film Club will meet to watch the documentary Holding Ground: The Rebirth of Dudley Street in the community room at Kings Crossing Senior Housing at 500 Dale Street (the NE corner of Dale and University Avenue in St. Paul). Find hope and inspiration in this story of neighbors coming together to strengthen a neighborhood in Boston. And get a first-hand glimpse at how these community development principles are being applied in St. Paul’s Frogtown neighborhood." Please RSVP here.
