The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless works to ensure every person has a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.
Thank you for supporting the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless this year. We have a few updates to share, starting with exciting news.
In October, we accepted the prestigious 2013 Nonprofit Mission Award, presented by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. The award recognizes the commitment and passion of people like you-- the community of citizens who believe lasting change is possible.
As a donor, you are the backbone of the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless. Your contributions provide the flexible funding needed for broad-based advocacy. Thank you.
Your support helped the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless co-lead the Homes for All campaign at the State Capitol. Together, with dozens of partners, we secured an additional $33 million for homelessness prevention and affordable housing. As a result, thousands of children, youth, and families will receive immediate help (through services like temporary shelter) and we're investing in long-term solutions: homes Minnesotans can afford.
This year, we are working to secure a record $100 million in bonds for housing at the State Capitol. This investment will help build and preserve housing for thousands of Minnesotans with extremely low-incomes.
Your contributions strengthened and broadened the movement to make homelessness history in Minnesota. Thank you for making this progress possible.
