Helping America's most vulnerable™

Our Home

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.

  • Residents pay no more than 30% of their adjusted income
  • Each household lives in their own unit and is responsible for unit care and upkeep
  • Participants retain occupancy as long as they qualify for the program
