Homeless Strategy & Advocacy Team

The Homeless Strategy and Advocacy Team (HSAT) is a collaboration of church members from numerous congregations in the St. Croix Valley and throughout Washington county, that are working to reduce homelessness. The team’s objectives are:

  • educate the community regarding the condition of its homeless neighbors.
  • identify homelessness mitigating solutions.
  • collaboratively advocate by rallying faith community, secular community, and government support that enable homelessness solution implementation.
  • and actively implement solutions for homelessness that improve our neighbors’ lives.

Volunteer to Help with Tiny Home

HSAT has partnered with the organization called Settled to sponsor a tiny home for a person experiencing chronic homelessness. Sacred Settlements prioritize sustainable housing, purposeful work, and supportive community.

Many thanks to everyone that donated money and/or time to successfully cover the cost of building a Tiny Home for a person experiencing homelessness. The Tiny Home’s exterior construction is largely completed. However, volunteers are still needed to finish the interior and prepare the Sacred Settlement site at First Church of the Nazarene in St. Paul.

To volunteer, fill out Settled’s volunteer form at the link below:

If you have questions about the tiny home initiative, please contact Mark Weber.
