MIWRC's Spring 2019 E-Newsletter

History of Housing at MIWRC

Since 1991, MIWRC has maintained 13 two- and three-bedroom Section 8 apartments to provide long-term housing for families who have experiences chronic homelessness, utilizing a modified "Housing First" approach with wraparound comprehensive case management services and referral provided by a fulltime Housing Coordinator. MIWRC's ability to provide high-quality Supportive Housing programming directly in the heart of the urban American Indian community also facilitates clients' access to the culturally competent healthcare, social, and recreational services concentrated here in the East Philips neighborhood.

2nd Graders at Pratt Community School Raised $730 for MIWRC!

Through a Project Based Learning social studies unit on citizenship, the 2nd graders at Pratt Community School focused on the question, "What organization can help us make a contribution to a community in need?" After researching organizations, writing persuasive speeches, and voting - MIWRC was selected! The students set a fundraising goal of $600 and exceeded their goal by raising an amazing $730! These dedicated young ones raised the funds primarily through hot drink and bake sales. They invited us to their school to present their work and learn more about MIWRC. Thank you for all of the hard work that students in Ms. Nevels' and Ms. Kraemer's 2nd grade classes did to support the urban Native American community! 

We are proud to announce that 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of our Free Legal Clinic in partnership with Faegre Baker Daniels LLP. In recognition of 25 years of dedicated service from the talented and generous team at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, we have created a tool for gathering feedback. Our goal is to show appreciation and gratitude to Faegre Baker Daniels LLP by highlighting the voices of the people they have helped throughout the last 25 years.
