Since 2013, the Heading Home Minnesota Funders Collaborative has invested more than $2 million to:

  • Create the Minnesota Interagency Countil on Homelessness, the State Office to Prevent and End Homelessness, and Heading Home Minnesota: Minnesota's Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness

  • Provide capacity to end veterans' homelessness in Minnesota

  • Improve data systems and intake processes so that homeless Minnesotans can access housing and services more effectively and efficiently. These investments have leveraged state resources and changed statewide systems. Since the Heading Home Minnesota plan was issued in December 2013, homelessness in Minnesota has decreased by 13%, with family homelessness decreasing by 23%.

  • Fund the initial staffing costs and technical assistance services of the Homework Starts with Home initiative.
