In 2014, Schwieters Investments of Lino Lakes donated 33 townhome parcels to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity—the largest land donation in the organization’s history. The townhome developments, known as Generation Acres, quickly attracted the support of Habitat’s public and private partners. Habitat volunteers have contributed nearly 50,000 hours of labor towards the project. Other public entities including the Washington County CDA, Met Council, and Minnesota Housing Finance Agency also helped finance the project. Today, eight Habitat families call Generation Acres home, with many more to come.
