Exciting news! The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless won the prestigious Nonprofit Mission Award in Advocacy, presented by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) and MAP for nonprofits. We are humbled to receive this recognition for our advocacy. However, this award really belongs to the hundreds of people and organizations that are dedicated to making lasting change.
Thank you for calling your legislators. And sending letters. And writing opinion pieces. Thank you for attending committee hearings. And showing up to the Capitol during a snow storm. Thank you for your contributions. And encouragement. Your advocacy makes a difference. Together we can ensure that every Minnesotan has a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.
The award will be presented at the 2013 MCN annual conference on October 25. We have a lot of work ahead. Today, we hope you take a moment to appreciate your role in ending homelessness.
