Affordable housing with case management
Our Home focuses on stabilizing homeless families who have a family member with a chronic disability. Located in central-rural Minnesota, Our Home provides affordable housing with supportive case management. The capacity of Our Home Permanent Supportive Housing is eight households. Case coordination works with individual members to create a family development plan that is reviewed weekly. Family development plans will address the underlying causes that contributed to becoming homeless and work to encourage behaviors that create stability.
