Help for Families in Transition

How You Can Learn More

In Minnesota, homeless children with parents make up over one-third of the homeless population. Every night there are over 3,000 children experiencing homelessness. Nearly half of these children are age 5 or younger. Nearly three-quarters of children are in the care of their mother or a single-female caregiver.

Solid Ground works together with others to meet the needs of the homeless children and their families. We also participate in policy development and advocacy at the local, state and national levels.

About Solid Ground

Solid Ground is an award-winning Minnesota nonprofit whose proven, holistic approach helps families build the strong foundations they need to emerge from homelessness into a brighter future. Through safe, affordable housing and innovative supportive programming, Solid Ground helps families break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for the next generation.

At the heart of Solid Ground is the belief that housing stability is fundamental to the healthy development of children and to a family’s ability to be contributing members of the community. Solid Ground currently runs eight programs in the suburban Ramsey and Washington Counties housing nearly 570 women, men and children annually. Our mission is to prevent and end homelessness for families with children in the communities we serve through housing, resources, and opportunity.
