Will you be a Shelter Supporter?

The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless invites you to be a Shelter Supporter this legislative session. Your commitment will make homelessness more visible to your lawmaker and in Minnesota. A Shelter Supporter will commit to taking action in different capacities. There are two levels to get involved: Champion and Advocate. Because of the past advocacy of people like you, homelessness and affordable housing are visible issues to lawmakers. With your support, we will work together to expand emergency shelter beds to ensure no one has to sleep outside, invest in programs that cultivate long-term stability, and guarantee everyone in our community has a permanent place to call home.  Can we count on you?
