Rochester, MN needs more affordable housing options. Period. Permanent supportive housing options for individuals with disabilities, men/women in the "system," and those without homes. Permanent supportive housing combines shelter with supportive resources right outside someone's door, rather than expecting him/her or a large family to find transportation (that is also expensive) and time to get to various resources around the city. PSH would provide resources right in the affordable housing units and allows individuals to stay there forever if they need, but has the hope that the individuals will gain the skills and confidence to eventually get out of their PSH unit. The Bruce & Elaine Foundation is hoping to build these communities using www.techdwell.com homes -- "miniature" and efficient housing units that can be built within days, with minimal tools, and with minimal building experience. These units cost $250-350 per month, which is affordable for someone making $1500 a year. Of course, if someone isn't making that much per year, The B&E Foundation will never turn anyone away. Affordable housing, great resources, and the chance at a stable life should be accessible to everyone. We need all the help we can get. This is a ground-up project; there was a recent article in the Post Bulletin that states that Rochester is slower to provide more affordable housing for it's residents. Let's make a difference in this community. Rochester is inclusive--not just for the elite; let's come together and prove it!
