🏡 Embracing the Past, Building the Future!

🌱 Homes are making a triumphant return to the historic St. John’s Hospital site in Red Wing. As the Executive Director of Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity, I’m thrilled to share that we’ve acquired this site from Mayo Clinic Health Systems for our pioneering large-scale housing project.

For over 30 years, Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity has been woven into the fabric of our community, building not just homes, but hope and lasting connections. This new project represents a significant step forward in our journey to create more affordable homeownership opportunities, enriching lives and strengthening the very essence of our community.

While in the early planning stages, this five-acre site holds the promise of offering affordable homeownership to 23 families. These families will actively contribute by building their homes, paying mortgages, and adding to the vibrant fabric of our community.







Help us shape the identity of this vibrant neighborhood by participating in our housing development naming contest at To bring this dream to life, we aim to raise around $1.2 million. Your ongoing financial and volunteer support is key in making a lasting impact.








Join us on September 20th at the former St. John’s Hospital site for a celebration where we’ll introduce our volunteers, neighbors, and the larger community to this transformative endeavor. Let’s honor our past while building a stronger future together. 🏘️🌟 #HabitatForHumanity #BuildingCommunities #30YearsOfImpact
