In Dakota County, the number of homeless individuals or those at imminent risk of being homeless rose to
1,013 on any given night according to point-in-time surveys conducted by the county in 2012.
Patience was no stranger to being homeless but after having 2 kids and running out of options she turned to Dakota Woodlands in Eagan, Minnesota. They accepted her with open arms and helped her get back on her feet in a matter of months. She now has her own place and steady job where she helps others in similar circumstances.
Over 92% of the residents who participate in the Dakot Woodlands full program succeed in staying stably housed after leaving the shelter.
The award winning program at Dakota Woodlands is known for its friendly atmosphere, personal attention and successful “one shelter stay” for its residents.
