Supportive Housing

The work to prevent and end homelessness is one of five strategic priorities adopted by Minnesota Housing, which includes the production and preservation of supportive housing. The overall goals of supportive housing are to:

  • Move people experiencing homelessness into affordable, permanent housing;

  • Promote housing stability with support services necessary to improve their wellbeing, such as employability, self-sufficiency, and other positive social outcomes; and,

  • Reduce the social costs associated with homelessness such as inappropriate use of emergency health care, shelter, chemical dependency, corrections, etc.

Increasing the supply of supportive housing is integral to achieving the goal of ending homelessness in the statewide plan: Heading Home: Minnesota's Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
