The Junior League of Saint Paul’s current initiative “Stable Housing, Thriving Communities” will focus community outreach efforts with a more specific emphasis on women and children by working through one or more of the following strategies:
- Increase the number of low-income homeowners who are able to obtain or maintain their own homes and remain housing stable
- Expand resources available to low-income renters with the intent to improve housing stability
- Raise community awareness regarding housing concerns and foster advocacy for affordable and stable housing resources
It’s no secret: our Twin Cities community is facing a crisis of affordable housing. The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on families, and many are struggling to provide a safe and stable home.
