Housing Stability

 

Housing Stability

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Once housing is stabilized, a family or individual can begin to address additional barriers to success.  United Way's funding priorities are responsive to community conditions and are meant to complement other local efforts.  The primary focus is on the lower/earlier end of the financial needs spectrum, and the goal of our investments is to improve emergency shelter capacity in Olmsted County in three primary ways: expanding the total number of shelter spaces in Olmsted County, reducing the need for emergency shelter through eviction prevention and rapid re-housing strategies, and improving navigation resources for homeless individuals and families.

These papers are meant to explore the topics of housing and homelessness, along with best practices found in the field.
