Help for Families Experiencing Homelessness

Prevention Assistance

Solid Grounds uses prevention funds for families that are at risk of homelessness. We do this by providing financial support to keep families stably housed. Families can get assistance with past due rent, utilities, and assistance paying the first month’s rent and deposit.

Solid Ground serves families in Ramsey and Washington County. Households are assessed by Solid Ground’s staff to determine eligibility and level of assistance. Funds are limited and may not be available for all households.
