The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless recently published a new report, Transitional Housing: Creating Upward Mobility for Minnesota’s Homeless based on visits from 23 Transitional Housing programs in rural, suburban, and urban areas. Transitional housing has served as a central role in the toolbox of housing programs since the mid-1980s, providing affordable housing and supportive services for families, youth, and adults without children.

Findings from this report emphasize the critical role of Transitional Housing in helping individuals committed to upward mobility. The report includes

  • Congregate and scattered site transitional housing programming overviews 
  • Contextual factors impacting outcomes and programming in different communities
  • Quotes from Transitional Housing providers
  • Considerations for policymakers, funders, and researchers
  • Sources and definitions
