In 2014, they served 130 families in the Twin Cities. Much of their work occurs in the inner cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Also, this past year they moved our ABWK offices/warehouse to NE Mpls. and would love to do more work in their new “backyard” in the neighborhoods of NE Minneapolis.
The typical home improvement projects include exterior painting and minor repairs to siding, porches/decks and windows. Interior projects include painting, minor patching and some flooring work. They also do a few larger projects as well as some accessibility work including roofing, ramps, railings as well as some electrical and plumbing.
Requirements for the program include filling out an application, having an income below 60% AMI, having a significant repair need and be willing to partner if capable and work on your project alongside volunteers.
