Residential Properties

Making and Keeping Housing Affordable

National and regional studies demonstrate that the lack of affordable housing is the primary factor linked to homelessness. This problem is compounded in urban areas, like Ramsey county, where there is little land available for large-scale affordable rental development. 

To address this urgent need in Ramsey and Washington counties, Community Action has launched a community development project aimed at creating affordable residential properties for those most in need. We've done this by focusing on purchasing and rehabilitating older housing stock that we can renovate into small, multi-family rental units. Though, this program is relatively new, we hope that our non-profit ownership model, which will ensure that housing units remain affordable, will continue to grow to provide relief to this urgent community need.
