“Hi, Governor Walz,
My name is [your name] and I live in [your county/city/district].Thank you for prioritizing affordable housing! As you know, homelessness is a statewide issue that needs statewide solutions. We need to push the full housing continuum from homeless supportive services to affordable home ownership. Supportive services are designed to build independent living and skills and connect people with community-based health care, treatment, and employment services. We’re counting on you to fight for the inclusion of dollars for supportive services like the Emergency Services Program. Emergency shelters are the starting point to long-term stability. Thank you!”
THANK YOU for your advocacy!!
We can’t do our work without you.
