For 2013, the Homes for All alliance worked hard to ensure that communities throughout the state could benefit from quality, affordable housing options, and that Minnesota's children could grow and learn without facing the damaging effects of homelessness.
Congratulations to Homes for All for helping secure a $33 million boost for housing and homeless services in state budget! Many, many more Minnesotans will have a safe, affordable place to call home and the resources to stay housed successfully as a result.
