ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – Affordable housing is coming to Rochester next year for single mothers and their children.
The $16.4 million dollar campus for the Jeremiah Program had a groundbreaking ceremony Monday morning across the street from Lourdes High School. The Jeremiah Program works to end the cycle of poverty for single moms and kids.
According to the organization’s website, the “Jeremiah Program is a national nonprofit aimed at ending the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children two generations at a time.”
The 64,000 foot campus will provide affordable housing for them as well as a child development center.
The campus is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020. When completed, the campus will house 40 families and offer wrap-around services. Prerequisite for enrollment includes attending Jeremiah’s signature Empowerment Training.
