'No child sleeps outside': Why Hennepin County leaders keep housing all homeless families despite growing costs

Imani Swinney moved to Minneapolis last year at the urging of her mother, who told her that the resources available in the city gave her a better shot at getting back on her feet.

Swinney and her two young daughters were "couch hopping," living with family and friends in North Carolina, when she decided to make the cross-country move to start over.

At first, they lived with Swinney's mom and friends. But last summer, they ended up in an emergency shelter for homeless families funded by Hennepin County at the Holiday Inn in Bloomington.
