Statewide Homelessness Survey gathers data for researchers from the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, who have spent almost three decades trying to figure out not just how many Minnesotans are homeless, but how to get them home.
Meet Jeannine, Kathy, and Dyland–residents and guests at Higher Ground Saint Paul–in this beautiful Star Tribune piece; we are honored they are part of our community. We also enjoyed partnering with the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation on their triennial statewide homelessness survey. Together, we are building a region where everyone has the opportunity to thrive! http://www.startribune.com/every-three-years-minnesotans-mobilize-to-find-the-homeless-and-listen-to-their-stories/498799051/
