Minnesota twin cities - Minneapolis and St. Paul - have pledged to shelter every veteran by 2015.
The Twin Cities have been working to eradicate veteran homelessness for years. The first step is housing these vets and a recent federal funding boost will help homeless veterans the cities afford existing housing. The funding will cover housing expenses after veterans pay one-third of their income.
Village Capital announced the winners of the $50,000 prize awarded to social entrepreneurs who don’t “self-define as social entrepreneurs”. The winners didn’t start out thinking of themselves as social enterprises.
