Creating Affordable Housing for Veterans in Plymouth, MN
Charles Cudd is honored to support those that have served our country and to give back to veteran families in our community. The city of Plymouth came to us with an opportunity to give our support in designing, building, and managing this home project. We collectively elected to donate all of our time, fees, experience to this project. Our trade partners were exceptional with their generosity as well. It is with their support that we are able to make this project a success!
The Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority is seeking partners to help address homelessness among military veterans.
A shortage of affordable housing often leads to homelessness for Minnesota veterans. In 2018, 46% of veterans experiencing homelessness noted a lack of affordable housing options as the primary barrier to finding stable housing, according to a statewide Wilder Research study conducted every three years.
Many veterans face complex health issues related to their time in service – and the limited affordable housing available does not always meet their health-related needs. Health-related quality of life needs such as handicap accessibility, clean air free of molds and mildew, and more create severe barriers to obtaining affordable and accessible
With more than 50,000 U.S. military veterans residing in Hennepin County, the number of veterans and veteran families impacted by the housing market is substantial.
Offering affordable and accessible housing for veterans and veteran families experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness will give them a permanent place to call home in a high-opportunity community – giving access to economic mobility and increased quality of life.
The Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority currently offers several programs to aid residents of varying demographics, incomes and situations – but none tailored explicitly to our veterans.
The HRA plans to build a twin home to provide permanent housing for two local veterans and their families. With the land purchased and the preliminary building plans in hand, the HRA, in partnership with Charles Cudd Co., seeks community partners to make permanent housing for veterans a reality.
We are seeking philanthropic support from building contractors, businesses and community groups for the development of the twin home. Whether it’s financial or an in-kind donation of labor and materials, your generosity will have a permanent place in the Plymouth community and make a difference in local veterans’ lives for decades to come.
