Housing First Minnesota Foundation
Housing First Minnesota Foundation is a mission-driven organization focused on partnerships that lead community build projects for vulnerable individuals, families and veterans who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Their community build projects are a unique, collaborative model connecting builders, remodelers, and their trade partners in the building industry with nonprofit organizations in need of new or renovated housing solutions.
Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV)
MACV provides transitional housing for veterans and their families who are at risk of homelessness or have a history of homelessness. This year, the Foundation will construct four new 4-bedroom homes— each with a 1-bedroom Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)—in Hennepin County, placing 20 veterans and their families into safe homes. The Foundation broke ground on two of these homes/ADUs this past fall and plans to complete construction of all four homes/ADUs in 2023.
Avivo provides transitional housing for low-income mothers in addiction recovery while living with their children. The Foundation plans to renovate up to four 2-bedroom apartment units in 2023. Each unit has an estimated completion time of three months.
