Minneapolis homeless camp inspires interfaith developer to plan 70-unit affordable complex


December 10, 2018

Inhabitants of a large homeless camp along Hiawatha and Franklin Avenues in south Minneapolis stay warm by a fire at night.

A St. Paul developer of affordable housing is making plans for a 70-unit apartment building for people who are homeless, after its leaders became increasingly troubled by the sight of a large homeless encampment in south Minneapolis.

Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, a group of 90 congregations working to end homelessness, said Wednesday that it has launched a campaign to raise up to $1.5 million in private funds to develop a building in Minneapolis with intensive support services.
