Many of us are lucky to have a place to call home. On National Philanthropy Day, let's help those who don't. Here are some fantastic housing-related charities we partner with at Coldwell Banker Burnet.
As the largest furniture bank in North America, Bridging has helped tens of thousands of families make their residence a home - all while preventing 128 million pounds of goods from hitting landfills. Website.
- Alexandra House
Everyone deserves to feel safe and loved at home. Alexandra House's mission is to end domestic and sexual violence. This nonprofit provides temporary housing, legal advocacy, therapy, support services, violence prevention programs, abuse in later life resources, community education and professional training. Website.
Since 1997, this admirable organization has been bringing home improvement projects - from accessibility to livability to community services - to low-income homeowners. Website.
- Ronald McDonald House
The Rochester, MN branch of this charity offers home-away-from-home comfort, care and hope to families with severely ill children. Each night, 42 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House in order to be close to a child receiving medical care in Rochester. Website.

As part of Catholic Charities (serving the Diocese of St. Cloud, MN), this studio apartment building provides affordable housing to veterans that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Website.
