A public-private initiative to end the cycle of homelessness.

On any given night, it is estimated that there are 10,000 Minnesotans who are homeless, including nearly 3,500 children with their parents.  The homelessness of any person or family is both a human tragedy and a community failure, resulting in the loss of human potential and public and private dollars. Heading Home Minnesota is the umbrella initiative for the many public and private efforts across the state to prevent and end homelessness.  We are a community of Minnesotans committed to ending homelessness by investing in proven and cost-effective strategies that promote individual and community success and provide a sound return on public and private investments.

HHM Funders Collaborative

Heading Home Minnesota Funders Collaborative

Many of the State’s most recognized foundations and intermediaries have come together as the Heading Home Minnesota Funders Collaborative.  By marshaling resources and aligning investments, collaborative members amplify the work of public agencies and the private and philanthropic sectors to replace the revolving door of housing instability with a front door to a safe, stable home for all Minnesotans.
