Our Housing Crisis: A Look at Alternative Housing Options

  • Hope Community Inc 611 East Franklin Avenue Minneapolis, MN 55404 (map)


There is a tremendous housing shortage in the Twin Cities and across the state of Minnesota, particularly affordable housing options for communities of color and indigenous communities. So what are alternative housing models that are available in community? There are alternative models such as manufactured housing, land trusts and housing cooperatives which have been around for several years. Come learn how we can embrace new and old ideas again to get folks housed. We must work together to solve this issue, as it an important and growing national issue which impacts everyone.
