Dominium Partners with Twin Cities Habitat to Sponsor a Home

In the Community

The affordable housing developer is providing $50,000 and 85 volunteers to build a home in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis

Dominium, a Minneapolis-based leading apartment owner, developer and manager, is partnering with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity to support the building of a five-bedroom home in Minneapolis for a family with eight children.

Dominium and Twin Cities Habitat began their partnership last August, with the build of a four-bedroom home in North Minneapolis. On June 18, 2019, that home was officially dedicated to its new homeowners. Dominium’s volunteers will continue their commitment to the home, returning later this year to help the owners with landscaping.

This week, 85 Dominium employees are volunteering for a week-long build, from August 12th-16th, to install siding, drywall and do exterior work on the new home.

“Dominium’s partnership with Twin Cities Habitat is extremely important to us and we sincerely value the work they do,” said Paul Sween, Managing Partner at Dominium. “Affordable housing is a complex issue, and the single-family homes that Habitat builds are essential to these communities.”

“I am so glad we are partnering with Twin Cities Habitat on another build,” said Mark Moorhouse, Partner and Senior Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at Dominium. “We are proud to support their work as we work toward a common goal of lowering the impact of the affordable housing crisis.” 

Dominium’s volunteers will spend the week working on the home and preparing it for the family that will live there. Photos of the build can be found here.
