Heading Home Hennepin unveils 10-year plan to end homelessness

Posted: Updated:

November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, but the number of people without a home is at a five-year high in Hennepin County.

Overflow shelters are currently open in Minneapolis for people in need, and the Minneapolis City Council addressed the issue at a meeting on Tuesday.

A group called Heading Home Hennepin presented a 10-year plan that would make sure everyone who doesn't have the means to pay for a home would still have shelter -- virtually ending homelessness in the county by 2016.

Wilder Research estimates there are more than 13,000 homeless people in Minnesota, and at least 34 percent are children.
