Open Your Heart provided 1st Step Housing Consultants with funding toward needed documents and resources that will aid a person experiencing homelessness, or at risk of becoming homeless, in housing stability. This funding will remove barriers by enabling 1st Step Housing to provide the documents necessary for their clients to obtain certain benefits, pay application fees, and/or apply for housing.

Whatever your goals are with the kind of “home” you hope to have – 1st Step Housing Consultants has the resources to connect you to what you need.
“As a fairly new organization, I had my share of doubts about reaching out to Open Your Heart for the Homeless and Hungry Grant. I was discouraged by a few rejections in the past but Open Your Heart, looked past the youth of my organization, and saw the need for the assistance we provide. Receiving this opportunity for funding has sordid my organization in the middle of the fight to end homelessness. We have been able to assist our local Minnesota community in paying for their Identification cards and citizenship records i.e birth certificates. We’ve also been able to help with rental application fees and small home good items for our clients who are transitioning into stable housing. With this support at our backs, 1 Step Housing Consultants are making a stand for change, and we owe it all to Open Your Heart.” – Aqueelah, 1st Step Housing Consultants
