We are focused on the four strategic goal areas outlined in our 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. One of the most prominent goals in 2016 is to successfully launch a new housing project for homeless veterans (falls under strategic goal area #4: Expand organizational growth and impact). This project is a partnership between Solid Ground, Sherman Associates and Metro HRA to house 10 long term homeless veterans and their families at Frost-English Village, a new 50-unit development in Maplewood, MN. Solid Ground is responsible for providing supportive services to the veterans and their families, including case management, benefits advocacy, physical/mental/chemical health supports, employment assistance, school support, and other services that lead to housing and economic stability.
