(Chaska, October 10, 2019) – The CDA and MACV (Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans) have formed a partnership to help house homeless Veterans. The CDA purchased a property in Carver County and will own and manage it, while MACV will refer homeless Veterans and provide case management.
“MACV exists to directly help veterans and their families affected by homelessness or those in danger of becoming homeless,” says Jon Lovald, Chief Operating Officer of MACV. MACV provides a structured assistance program giving the veteran support to once again become a productive member of the community, confidence to rebuild relationships and knowledge that the community recognizes and cares about them and their services to our country.
Carver County CDA currently serves homeless households as a Coordinated Entry Access Point for single adults and families, through our rental assistance programs and with 17 project-based voucher units designated for homeless, with three already designated for Veterans. “The CDA is excited to expand our partnerships and work closely with MACV towards Governor Walz’s goal of ending Veteran homelessness in Minnesota,” says Julie Frick, Executive Director of Carver County CDA.
