The Housing First Minnesota Foundation’s latest Housing for Heroes project is nearly all framed up. Build partner Lennar has been busy framing the Bloomington home this week.
The new, four-bedroom, single-family residence and will serve as transitional housing for male veterans experiencing homelessness. While in the home, residents will work with case managers to overcome their housing, employment, and legal barriers. This critical program gives homeless veterans the support and confidence needed to once again find success.
This is the third house that the Housing First Minnesota Foundation/ HomeAid Twin Cities has built with partner Lennar for the Minnesota Assistance Council or Veterans. The lot for the home that is located on Penn Avenue in Bloomington was provided to the Housing First Minnesota Foundation by the City of Bloomington’s HRA.
After construction, MACV will own the residence and provide veterans with the services they need to become self-reliant again. Each day of progress on this home is another exciting step in the fight to end veteran homelessness.
Stay tuned for more updates on the home on Penn!
