A successful legislative breakfast on February 5 2019 led to the creation of a new MICAH St. Paul Chapter. We are a group from diverse faith communities, community organizations, and individuals, focusing on the need for shelter and affordable housing in St. Paul. We acknowledge the role racism plays in housing and strive to fight it. We work to educate ourselves and others about current affordable housing needs and to identify ways we can help create and preserve more affordable housing in the city, county, and state.
Subjects and Matter to date:
homeless children in the school district and their families
the families in Project Home
the lack of acceptance of Section 8 vouchers
how high rents increase homelessness
how "upscaling" displaces low-income families from their affordable apartments
We are now exploring opportunities to have an impact especially for families with school-age children and homeless youth and tenants with Fair Housing issues. We welcome your participation as we grow in our knowledge and ability to help people have a safe, accessible, and affordable place to call home.
Our monthly meetings alternate on these months.
First Lutheran Church, Norelius Hall Library: November.
St. Anthony Park Lutheran Church: September, October, and December.
