2018 Annual Report

Family Housing Fund is pleased to share our 2018 Annual Report to the Community. We ended 2018 with a new strategic framework, and moving forward, our core work will be organized around the following three goals: Increase Supply, Expand Opportunities, and Activate More Housing Champions.

We believe building a better Minnesota starts from the ground up—it starts with a place to call home. And it requires all of us, working together, to build a strong system that supports access to decent, affordable housing for everyone.

Thank you to the staff, board of directors, generous funders, and partners that make this work possible.
