Habitat for Humanity History


In Americus, Georgia, Millard and Linda Fuller developed the concept of “partnership housing.” The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build decent, affordable houses. The houses would be built at no profit. New homeowners’ house payments would be combined with no-interest loans provided by supporters and money earned by fundraising to create “The Fund for Humanity,” which would then be used to build more homes.  In 1976, Habitat for Humanity International was founded

Tithe dollars from Minnesota affiliates increase Habitat’s reach from beyond our state to the rest of the world. Habitat Minnesota and Minnesota affiliates tithed $486,276 in FY18! This means that people all over the world, from the Philippines to Uganda, became homeowners, in part through this monetary support. 

Habitat for Humanity Freeborn Mower was created in 1990.  Since then, we have built 43 homes and repaired numerous homes, yards and neighborhoods.
