Cass Lake, MN and particularly the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe is facing a critical housing shortage with the LLB itself identifying an immediate need of over 500 housing units in Cass Lake for tribal members.
In response, Cass County Commissioners dedicated American Rescue Act funds to assist with this housing crisis and convened a wide group of community stakeholders to find solutions.
Lakes Area Habitat For Humanity, as a part of this solution group, committed to building 4-5 homes per year for the next few years in Cass Lake. It’s a small step in helping with this crisis but an important beginning.
The first 4 of these Habitat homes in Cass Lake have started. Volunteers are desperately needed for these builds. Please contact Heidi at 218-454-7021 to volunteer.
