HEALTHY HOUSING HANDBOOK
Community Engagement
AS HOMEBOAT
ST JAMES, MINNESOTA

We created and printed a series of Healthy Housing Handbooks for the St. James community. The Handbook is broken into four sections: Engagement Tools, Implementation Strategies, Handyman and Advocate Programs, and a Housing Resource Guide.


The St. James Housing Committee used the publication as a workbook, strategically working through the implementation strategies and engagement tools. Within less than six months, they had organized the housing advocates and secured signifigant funding for local housing programs, facilitated handyman trainings, launched a local handyman program, established a low-interest home repair fund, and worked with volunteers and neighbors on light home maitenance projects.
