A note from Rhonda:
“I’m excited about being a part of a statewide organization that is committed to empowering and engaging people that care about housing instability and affordability. Increasing public investment in housing and services that addresses housing instability—ultimately making a long-term impact for children, families, adults, seniors and veterans across Minnesota.”
