Income disparity in the U.S. continues to grow. 70% of Americans have less than $800 to bear an unexpected expense before they lose their job or utilities, or face unsheltered homelessness.
Minnesota is facing a housing crisis that our elected officials have failed to address. There have been no advancements in low-income housing (LIH) since the 1980s. The average wait time for LIH is 3-5 years. No one should go to sleep hungry, not have money for food or medicine, be unable to afford an education, or struggle to meet day-to-day needs. The fact that this is a truth in our nation reflects a collective decision that this is somehow acceptable.
Through ZACAH, you make it possible to lessen the distress of those who have been marginalized, neglected and harmed by structural, systemic oppression. We provide emergency financial assistance, prevent homelessness, job loss and hunger. In 2017, we opened a transitional living home. Our goals are only getting bigger: we are forming a Partnership Against Homelessness, working with over ten organizations in the Twin Cities and plan on expanding our transitional home to a larger facility to provide safe, dignified housing.
This is our responsibility. This is our society. These are our neighbors.
Please join ZACAH as we embark on our mission.
