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.
