In 2011, the boards of Neighborhood Housing Services (founded in 1983) and Northern Communities Land Trust (founded in 1990) voted to merge the two organizations into one. The result was the formation of One Roof Community Housing on January 1, 2012. Together, as One Roof, we bring to the community a combined 50 years of experience in providing housing services and building and sustaining affordable homes and healthy neighborhoods.
One Roof’s mission and programs serve to make home a better place. That’s why we make it as easy as possible for people in Duluth and the surrounding communities to purchase, renovate, maintain and keep a home as long as they like. We offer a range of services including affordable homeownership opportunities, homebuyer counseling, tenant & landlord mediation, rehabilitation & repair loans, down payment assistance, and a free tool-lending library.
