Rice County Habitat for Humanity

Rice County Habitat was chartered in 1991 and built its 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.  See some of our pictures in our PHOTO ALBUMS.
