“The solution to homelessness is a home. And we can’t stop until that is the reality for each and every person in Minnesota. Everyone deserves a place to call home.

Catholic Charities is grateful to receive this investment from Minnesota Housing and we will now move full speed ahead with the new vision for the Dorothy Day Center, providing dignified shelter, permanent homes and opportunity to the most vulnerable in our community.” –Tim Marx, President & CEO of Catholic Charities

Today the State of Minnesota (via the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency) awarded $100 million to provide permanent affordable homes across Minnesota. Catholic Charities is grateful to receive a portion of this historic investment to build “Higher Ground Saint Paul.” We are honored to be part of the solution. We also hope today’s milestone will inspire our leaders to support similar investments in future years.
