Shellie Rowe, housing stability program manager for Neighborhood House, speaks about the impact recent events have had on families working to maintain stable housing, and how resources like the Community Sharing Fund provide support and hope during times of need.
“Despite the temporary eviction moratorium in Minnesota, families still owe rent. We’ve seen families come forward owing six to eight thousand in rent,” says Shellie. “In my program, a family can call in and do all the paperwork online. We can get to the end result, and we partner with Ramsey County Emergency Assistance, with the landlords and with other community agencies such as Community Sharing Fund to get to a zero balance. That’s our goal is to prevent evictions in Ramsey County.”
