Partnership with Urban Homeworks

Urban Homeworks catalyzes powerful people, using equitable housing as a platform to build community.

Urban Homeworks transforms vacant properties into dignified, healthy homes in neighborhoods in Minneapolis and St. Paul, redeeming real estate so that the community can catalyze change agents and leaders.

The force that brings together the powerful people of the community and the resources of the public, private and faith sectors is hope. With equitable housing as our platform and a people-oriented development (POD) model as our tool, we intentionally weave a network of neighbors engaged in the challenges and rewards of urban living.

Mingle works with our homeowners during the demo process to salvage cabinetry, counter tops and other products that are then donated to Urban Homeworks who in turn uses these materials in the homes they renovate. Mingle also works with our vendors to coordinate donating products such as plumbing, hardware, lighting, flooring, along with our showroom displays and products that are updated.
