  • The Long-Term Homelessness Supportive Services Fund simply helps Minnesotans navigate complex paths out of homelessness. Supporting this fund is critical to moving us toward #Homes4AllMN

  • Imagine a MN where we have housing stability for all low-income Minnesotans. We can with Beacon's Bring it Home, MN Campaign. The bill, authored by @mikehowardmn @KariDziedzic, creates a Minnesota rent subsidy program so that all people can live in a home they can afford.

  • Minnesotans shouldn’t have to choose between healthcare and housing. #mnleg can take action this session to strengthen housing support for those at risk of homelessness. Pls support the #Homes4AllMN agenda found here: https://bit.ly/35uB6RL  

  • ESP is the state’s primary investment in emergency shelters and the most flexible funding available to support operations, including staffing, food and supplies. With needs exacerbated because of COVID, we need #mnleg to invest in the #Homes4AllMN agenda that includes ESP. 

  • Reaching recovery is impossible without a stable home. That’s why it’s important that we all support #Homes4AllMN. Watch our 2021 legislative kickoff here: https://bit.ly/35uB6RL
