Stable housing is out of reach for far too many Minnesotans. At least 7,600 Minnesotans experience homelessness on any given night, based on an annual count of people experiencing homelessness. A much larger group of Minnesotans are precariously housed, and may be only a crisis away from experiencing homelessness. With little disposable income and too much income going towards housing, a family is forced to make difficult decisions, often sacrificing meals, medicine or safe child care for a place to live. Even with careful planning, a single health, employment or transportation crisis could result in homelessness.

Minnesotans need stable homes to sustain health, employment, connection to community, and overall well-being. In short, stable housing provides a critical platform for success. Without it, children, adults, families and communities suffer.
