South Metro Elected Officials Housing Bus Tour , October 27, 2015 

Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire, along with other elected officials, after our October 27th South Metro Elected Officials Housing Bus Tour. 

MICAH South and member organization CATCH invited Mayors, County Commissioners, State Legislators and faith community leaders on an across the aisle Housing Bus Tour. This was an opportunity to hear from Dakota County’s housing professionals while the full coach traveled past various types of affordable housing resources in Eagan and Burnsville. In addition, this Tour featured a stop at Lincoln Place, supportive housing for young adults, and a site visit with panel discussion at Dakota Woodlands emergency shelter. This tour with elected officials was highlighted as an opportunity for “Advancing the conversation on housing in Dakota County…”


At the MICAH 2017 Celebration "Living Love!", the MICAH South Chapter recognized as Community Heroes, the four congregations, Grace Lutheran Church, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church, and Easter Lutheran Church, who were willing to open their doors to 78 of our community members and host a warm, safe 24 hour temporary crisis shelter during bitterly cold days in December and January. The Pioneer Press wrote about this effort here

  Treated with dignity and respect, singles, youth and families who had no other option for safe shelter, found rest, warmth, help and peace with these four hosting faith communities. Through their faith, courage and commitment, numerous other Dakota County community partners, elected officials, congregation members and organizations have become aware of the need for a safe shelter for our neighbors. Hundreds reached out in support of the shelter guests last winter. They have given of their time, donated needed supplies, contributed financially and are seeking ways to be part of the effort to establish a permanent safe shelter for our neighbors. A vital initiative has developed through these four congregations who on short notice answered a critical community need.
