About Us

Rice County Habitat was chartered in 1991 and built our first house in 1993 in Northfield. A couple of things merged together to create our affiliate. First, a group of people from some local churches went on a Habitat trip to Michigan. They came back inspired and energized to do the same work locally. Secondly, there was a city program in Faribault that helped to remodel homes with and for people who were low-income. People from both of those groups came together to form a Rice County Habitat for Humanity affiliate.

Since that time, we have continued to build houses with people in need. Habitat brings together volunteers and Partner Families to build not only homes, but communities.

Rice County Habitat for Humanity partners with families who otherwise may be unable to achieve the dream of home ownership by establishing partnerships among God's people to build simple, decent, affordable homes.

We choose households on three main criteria:
- Need for Housing
- Ability to Pay
- Willingness to Partner

We are looking for two households who want to live in our quad that's currently under construction in Northfield.

We are also accepting applications for the six single family homes to be build in Faribault in 2024 (moving in by April, 2025).

Volunteers are a vital part of our mission. We welcome individuals, corporations, community groups, faith congregations, and many more to join us in building safe, affordable homes in our community. No prior experience is necessary – we’ll show you what to do!
