Twin Cities Entrepreneurs House
The house is a community service project for the Twin Cities entrepreneurial community. A group of companies, investment firms and other businesses that serve the entrepreneurial community are coming together to build a house as a part of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. The project allows for a valuable team-building experience for your employees, while also providing this important community contribution.
Entrepreneurs House co-founder Wayne Atkins passed away on March 11, 2014, after a long battle with cancer. Wayne was an extraordinary leader who also served on Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s board of directors and finance committee, among other civic contributions. Entrepreneurs House was very dear to Wayne as he watched it grow from inception to a program that has raised more than $1 million for Habitat for Humanity. In memory of Wayne, the eHouse Steering Committee and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity has dedicated this year’s house: “The 2014 Wayne Atkins Entrepreneurs House."
The 2014 Wayne Atkins Entrepreneurs House is complete!
The project was a big success and the house looks great. Approximately 600 volunteers worked on the build this year. Thank you to all the participating companies and volunteers for your valuable time and effort.
The dedication ceremony will be held Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 6:00 pm to celebrate the completion of the house with the family. The celebration will be held at the site at 7041 60th Ave North in Crystal, MN
Many of you have made generous financial contributions as well. We raised more than $110,000 in donations. Please contact Mik Gusenius at 952-253-6005 if you would like to make a financial pledge
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit organization that builds homes for low income families. Over 1,500,000 people live in over 300,000 homes built by Habitat over its 30 year history. Habitat’s approach is oriented toward helping less fortunate families to help themselves by building homes with volunteer labor and then selling the homes to the families at an affordable cost with a zero interest mortgage. Habitat is a Christian-based organization, drawing its fundamental tenets from the biblical principles of serving the poor and charging no interest on lending money to those less fortunate. Supporters of Habitat include large numbers of religious congregations, corporations, and individuals.
