Helping Jodi and her children become homeowners of a new home will not only give them the financial security they have been hoping for but a safe place for their children to live in. Click here to read their story!

The Rychnovosky Family

Park Rapids Build

Park Rapids Family

Meet Josh, Tara, and their three children Skylar (6), Arianna (4), and Brianna (3).

Josh is an American hero - serving 2 tours in Iraq fighting for our freedom before
becoming medically discharged in February of 2013. 
When asked what becoming a Habitat for Humanity Homeowner will mean to them, Tara responded quite emotionally, “Having a home means our kids will have a permanent, secure, and safe place to live.  It means we will no longer have to rent places that have things that don’t work, improper ventilation, and mold.  It means our kids will have a yard to play in.  It means we will be a family with a place to call home.  It is a dream come true!”
