Urban Homeworks

Urban Homeworks (UHW) has developed programs to stabilize neighborhoods in Minneapolis since 1995. The organization creates affordable, accessible rental and for-sale housing by building and training a network of more than 17,000 community residents and active volunteers. Their programs have provided construction training and living wage jobs for low-income, at-risk youth and young adults who have redeveloped over 200 properties in northern and southern Minneapolis and St. Paul.

In 2014, the Nonprofits Assistance Fund provided $612,000 financing to refinance UHW’s existing office space and to acquire and rehab additional office space to support its growth. In 2016, Partners for the Common Good provided capital to fund 50% of the loan. The funding allows UHW to expand its programs for providing housing opportunities and construction training to stabilize targeted neighborhoods.
