Get to Know Us

Welcome to Internal Housing Assistant (IHA) Minnesota. We are a newly established organization operating in Central Minnesota, dedicated to promoting equitable housing opportunities and addressing housing disparities in our community. Our mission is rooted in the belief that everyone deserves access to safe, affordable, and culturally affirming homes.

At IHA Minnesota, we recognize the historical and ongoing systemic barriers that have disadvantaged marginalized communities in Central Minnesota. We acknowledge that housing policies and practices have disproportionately impacted Indigenous people, Black Minnesotans, and households of color. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is at the core of our work as we strive to right these historic wrongs and create a more just and equitable housing system. 


We are driven by the belief that housing is not merely a basic need but also a vital foundation for individuals and families to thrive. We understand that housing instability can have far-reaching consequences on individuals' health, education, employment, and overall well-being. By addressing housing disparities, we aim to foster stability, empowerment, and opportunities for all residents in Central Minnesota.

Our Vision

Our vision is a society where housing is a fundamental right, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities have equitable access to safe, affordable, and culturally affirming homes. We envision a future where housing disparities that disproportionately impact BIPOC communities are eliminated, and where every individual, regardless of their racial or ethnic background, can thrive in housing that honors their heritage, supports their well-being, and strengthens their communities. 

Our Mission

Our organization is dedicated to reducing disparities in homeownership and providing low-income renters, with a particular focus on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, with a multitude of housing options. We are committed to creating equitable and sustainable housing opportunities that empower individuals and families to achieve stability, economic mobility, and generational wealth.
