A Mankato family of four mark an important milestone in the construction of their new home and the community is invited to join in the groundbreaking celebration on August 10, 2022, at 3pm at 160 Monks Ave.

The Ruiz family will be the fiftieth Habitat homeowner in Mankato. Habitat for Humanity is a hand up not a handout. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Homeownership offers many benefits for families, communities, and local economies and Habitat is excited to partner with the community of Mankato to build more affordable homes.

Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
