The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless is “uniquely positioned as the hub of a statewide network of 150 homeless service providers and other concerned individuals and organizations across Minnesota.” A great list of their member organizations – places where you might plug in – is here.
Visit and follow their blog to stay current on what is happening now and how you can connect.
Heading Home Hennepin is the county’s initiative to end homelessness by 2016. Read their Annual Reports to get a sense of where they are at in their work. A clickable map lets you see what initiatives are being worked on statewide, and their Get Involved link is full of ways to educate yourself and plug in.
HUD.gov (US Department of Housing and Urban Development) has a number of great resource links for those experiencing homelessness or perhaps on the brink, as well as those who are interested in helping. Housing counselors, affordable housing information, and a searchable data base of Minnesota service providers are just some of what is available.
