Homelessness and Housing Instability

Plan to Increase Housing Stability and Reduce Homelessness – 2022

In October, November, and December 2021, the Red Wing community held a series of meetings to develop a plan to address homelessness and housing instability. The meetings, hosted by the City of Red Wing and our local United Way, were facilitated by Ali Niemi of North Star Policy Consulting. Ali presented the final plan to City Council on January 10, 2022. The plan was accepted at the January 24 Council meeting. A large group of organizations formed the Housing Strategy Partners and are now working collaboratively toward achieving the goals set out in the plan. Questions? Please call 651-212-3812.

These virtual meetings focused on specific aspects of the planning in these three areas:

  • Increasing Supportive/Affordable Housing
  • Emergency Shelter
  • Homeless Prevention/Crisis Response
