Breaking Free’s permanent housing facility was opened through a partnership with the Minnesota Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 2001. The 34-unit apartment complex is master-leased by Breaking Free with one- and two-bedroom units.
Our permanent supportive housing program houses survivors (and their children. We call this program "permanent supportive housing" because we are not mandated by our funding to require a time limit of stay for residents. It is our hope and design that clients will utilize this program and its supportive services to eventually achieve self-sufficiency.
"The United States contains less than a dozen shelters (under 100 beds) that cater specifically to trafficked women and youth. Breaking Free's housing program has been providing safety and shelter to our clients since 2001."
