LWV Roseville Area members, as part of the affordable housing study, toured Prior Crossing in St. Paul. The facility is 44 studio appartments for homeless aged 16-24. The Wilder Foundation provides on-site services, and the facility was built and is administered by Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative. We were extraordinarily impressed by the services available to residents and its facilities. Our tour leader, Denise Ellis, assured us that our voices are the most powerful and valuable resource we can use to promote the cause of affordable housing.
This photo shows what greets every resident when they enter their own apartment for the first time. There will be a full article in the July-August issue of The Voter.
