Develop Partnerships

One of our core programs focuses on developing partnerships with housing providers, community organizations, and local governments to identify and develop affordable housing options.

We understand that the availability of safe and affordable housing is essential for individuals and families to thrive. By collaborating with various stakeholders, we aim to increase the supply of affordable housing in Central Minnesota and ensure that it is accessible to those who need it most.

Through these partnerships, we can create housing options that are inclusive, sustainable, and responsive to the unique needs of our community members.

Homeownership Education

Our Homeownership Education program aims to empower low-income families with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the path to successful homeownership. We believe that homeownership can be a transformative opportunity for individuals and families, providing stability, wealth-building potential, and a sense of pride in one's community.

Through our education classes, participants learn about the homebuying process, financial literacy, mortgage options, and homeownership responsibilities. We also provide resources and guidance to help families overcome barriers to homeownership, such as down payment assistance programs and credit counseling. By equipping families with the necessary tools, we aim to increase homeownership rates and bridge the homeownership gap that disproportionately affects marginalized communities.

Rental Assistance Outreach

Our Rental Assistance Outreach program focuses on raising awareness and providing information about affordable housing options and rental assistance programs to low-income renters. We understand that many individuals and families face challenges in accessing safe and affordable rental housing.

Through targeted outreach efforts, we educate and inform renters about available resources, rental subsidies, and programs that can help alleviate the financial burden of renting. We collaborate with community partners, local agencies, and social service organizations to ensure that eligible individuals and families are connected to the appropriate rental assistance programs.

By expanding knowledge about rental assistance options, we strive to increase housing stability and reduce the risk of homelessness among vulnerable populations.

Community Engagement

Our Community Engagement and Advocacy program lies at the heart of our work. We actively engage with community members, organizations, and policymakers to amplify marginalized voices and advocate for equitable housing policies.

We believe that community-led solutions are essential for addressing housing disparities effectively. Through partnerships and collaborations, we facilitate meaningful dialogue, identify systemic barriers, and co-develop strategies to advance housing justice. We actively participate in community forums, public hearings, and policy discussions to advocate for policies that promote fair housing, increase affordable housing options, and address the root causes of housing inequities. By mobilizing community support and fostering inclusive decision-making processes, we aim to create lasting systemic change.
