Being a member of Christ Presbyterian Church in Edina and hearing the impact that Urban Homeworks has had on the community is inspring. I plan to volunteer to help with their mission next summer. Urban Homeworks truly makes a difference.

As a neighbor in North Minneapolis I have the privilage to live near many of Urban Homework's houses. Any organization can rehab a building but Urban Homeworks rehabs neighborhoods by the quality work they do, engaging the community during the transformation of a building and challenging those who become an Urban Homeworks resident to be part of the solution for the surrounding blocks. If North Mpls had more organizations like this you wouldn't be hearing such bad things on the news about the "Northside" but rather a transformation. From top down the folks at Urban Homeworks are top notch as experienced first hand and your dollar if donated here will go further than you would ever imagine.
