Move-In Day for Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans

The Housing First Minnesota Foundation and build partner Lennar are set to hand over the keys of the second home to be donated to the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV). Lennar started construction of the home back in April and wrapped up in August. A key ceremony is scheduled for mid-September.

The five-bedroom home will be used by MACV to house homeless female veterans, a population of the community that MACV says is in growing need. The Maplewood lot for this home was donated by the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS® Foundation.

“We’re very excited to be donating a second home to MACV,” said Donnie Brown, Housing First Minnesota Foundation manager. “The work MACV does for our veteran community is so important and we’re happy we are able to use the talents and generosity of our industry to be able to help them fulfill an important need.”

Lennar helped the Housing First Minnesota Foundation complete a similar home for MACV last year that was built to house homeless veterans along with their families.
