Resident Shataye, who asked that her last name not be used to protect her privacy, is excited and grateful to have stable housing at Mino Oski Ain Dah Yung Permanent Supportive Housing facility and plans to go to college to receive a degree.

After bouncing from shelter to shelter for four years, 19-year-old Shataye finally has a place of her own to lay her head and help to get back on her feet.

Beaming with joy, she recently moved into a St. Paul apartment, one of 42 units at Mino Oski Ain Dah Yung, a new $13.6 million building that means "good new home" in Ojibwe.
