ABWK began in the United States in 1999 as a neighborhood revitalization program of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The program was created by Pat Lund, and with support from the Valspar Corp., it continues to have a significant impact on families and communities in the Twin Cities area. HFHI, with generous support from the Valspar Corp., has modified that local program and is encouraging affiliates all across the country to join the ABWK movement by expanding their scope of services.
By participating in ABWK, you will become part of a new movement to expand Habitat’s capacity to help those in need of a safe and decent place to live. Your light will shine brighter in your community as people see how your work serving those in need is restoring hope and dignity to their lives.
