Eden Prairie-based youth transitional housing

Onward believes everyone deserves a safe, stable home. Many young adults in Minneapolis' southwest suburbs don't have this. In response, we opened Eden Prairie-based Onward House in 2018.  This is our organization's pilot program.

We've enjoyed broad-based community support from individuals, community organizations, businesses and foundations. We committed to growing our support and our reach. We are just getting started.

Since opening our doors, we've provided housing stability and support services to thirteen young women (ages 18 - 25) who previously had neither. We provided the stability and support they needed to move into independent living situations.

Onward House facts

- We can serve four young people at a time. 

- They can stay for up to two years., most stay for about 10 months.

- We've served 13 young women since opening our doors, 77% identify with a community of color.

- We charge nominal rent so that residents can afford to invest time and money in their education, establish emergency savings and save for a deposit on an apartment. 

- All of our residents work and most attend some kind of post-secondary education program. Many earn degrees while living here.

- We provide ongoing case management to help the residents set and achieve personal self-sufficiency goals.  

Having a safe, reliable place to sleep each night is transformational for young people who have often been moving from couch to couch or sleeping in a car with all the discomfort and insecurity that arrangement entails.   

Onward residents tell us that they are able to concentrate on the future when the present is assured.
