Amazing partners like Dominium, Hennepin County, Wells Fargo, the Minnesota office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Medina community and dozens of others surrounded Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners Executive Director LaDonna Hoy as she cut the ribbon at the Medina Townhomes grand opening celebration in December. This new, critical housing asset in our west suburban community is now home to 96 people, 40 of whom are children.
Medina Townhomes’ 26 newly constructed affordable townhomes were made possible in part because of the generosity of donors, volunteers, partners and this great community. Specifically, Dominium, a Minneapolis-based apartment development and management company, led the effort. Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners provides services to all residents and rental assistance for units occupied by families experiencing long-term homelessness. Using a more-than-housing approach, services such as afterschool tutoring for youth and referrals to community resources for adults as part are offered to all residents through the Interfaith Outreach Neighborhood Program. Interfaith Outreach also contributed financially to the development of this project.
“We are proud to be celebrating the opening of Medina Townhomes,” said Jeff Huggett, vice president and project partner for Dominium. “This will be a great addition to the Medina community and provide crucial affordable housing to the community.”
