Community Insight Session: Housing Stability
Join us for an expert panel discussion and Q&A on the current state of homelessness for Native American communities, a vision for the future, and on how Native-American-led solutions can help end homelessness for all.
The realities of homelessness for Native American communities were thrown into the spotlight after the encampment in Minneapolis last year, also known as the Wall of Forgotten Natives. But Native Americans have been disproportionately impacted by homelessness for as long as we have data – in fact, Native Americans are overrepresented in the population of people experiencing homelessness by a factor of 12.
At Greater Twin Cities United Way, we believe that safe, stable and affordable housing is key to every person’s success, and that our community can come together to effectively end the most egregious form of housing stability – homelessness. That’s why we work with our communities to ensure that everyone has what they need in order to obtain and maintain housing that works best for them.
