Twin Cities Habitat AmeriCorps  
                   Volunteers on the Range!                                                                                                                               

          
 
North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity was delighted to welcome the AmeriCorps team from Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity this week!  Nineteen young and talented builders worked on the Kniefel Habitat home in Mountain Iron, braving the cold temperatures in order to complete the exterior of the home and move it to the interior work stage.  Local community volunteers and the Kniefel’s family and friends have helped construct the home which started this fall.  The AmeriCorps team helped push the project over this critical milestone as temperatures begin to plummet in the northland.  This home is the last of five new home projects started by NSLCHFH in the 2017 building season which will now have its “winter coat” and be ready for warmer volunteer days in the interior of the home. 
 
The Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity AmeriCorps team is made up of dedicated, community minded men and women who are giving a year of service.  They receive a modest stipend to enable their year of full time volunteering.  This team is currently leading volunteers on Habitat for Humanity projects in the Cities, thus bringing great expertise and energy to button up the Kniefel home.  “These hearty and dedicated volunteers are a godsend to our organization”, said Nathan Thompson, NSLCHFH Executive Director.  “Our last volunteer day on December 2nd was 40 degrees!  We have all been working extra hard to get this project out of the exterior work phase and the AmeriCorps team will get us to inside work just in time.”

We have four active build sites, located in Cook, Hibbing and Mt. Iron, where volunteers would be welcome!
