PPL learned early on that people need more than just a safe place to live, they need a foundation from which they can thrive. Offered onsite for PPL residents, we provide a continuum of services that meet people “where they are.” Whether achieving stable housing directly from homelessness, as a recent immigrant, or as a hard-working family needing resources to take the next positive steps in their lives, PPL offers a variety of support services designed to help our residents gain the tools, resources, and supportive network they need to build brighter, more stable futures.
Dedicated staff meet one-to-one with participants to customize a set of services based on personal or household needs. Each person has a voice in his or her journey towards self-sufficiency, and each journey is mapped at a pace that feels right.
PPL’s longstanding support services program empowers residents to determine their personal and family goals, and take the steps needed to achieve them. Staff work across the Twin Cities region to help participants navigate a wealth of tools and resources in the areas of: work readiness, financial literacy, health and wellness, parenting skill-building, and life skills coaching; as well as building digital literacy skills through our innovative mobile computer labs. This program serves residents across a spectrum of need, from long-term homeless families to those only seeking a little help in advancing on their path to greater stability.
Located in east St. Paul, our New Foundations Program serves families moving from homelessness to permanent, supportive housing. Each family has at least one member with a dual diagnosis reflecting chemical and mental health concerns, in many cases families are reunited after significant time apart. Our family-focused approach acknowledges that learning to be more self-sufficient includes developing strong and respectful family relationships. Services target and address issues around holistic health, parenting skill-building, education, and work readiness. An onsite resident council, children’s program, and computer lab bolster community building and vibrancy.
Cabrini Partnership: A PPL Program provides transitional housing and permanent supportive housing services throughout Hennepin County. Services are designed to help adults manage mental health, maintain sobriety, and break the cycle of homelessness.
Transitional housing offers residents the opportunity to live in a truly supportive community. They share household duties and meet each week to talk about the challenges and celebrate the successes that come with building a safe, sober life. As they gain stability, participants are encouraged to build connections to their surrounding community.
Residents of permanent supportive housing learn the importance of building relationships from the moment they move in. They not only set life-changing goals with program staff; but they learn to develop a wider support system of neighbors, friends, and others in the community.
