Equal Opportunity Housing

Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, handicap, religion, national origin, family status, material status, or because all or part of a family’s income is derived from public assistance programs or if the family applicant has exercised any Consumer Credit Protection Act Rights.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Habitat homeowner.

We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home. To carry out our vision, we partner with individuals and families from construction through closing. Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity will help you learn to budget your income, understand the responsibilities of homeownership, and provide home care advice and tips.

Sorry, we are not accepting applications at this time.

We have enough families qualified and approved for homes for this construction season and to begin the construction season next year. We leave the application forms posted for you to review, but for the reason stated, Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity cannot currently accept applications.

We expect to begin accepting applications again October 1, 2021.
