A massive home-shelter project to house homeless people in the Twin Cities is under way

The Minneapolis Department of Human Services is building a new shelter for homeless people who live in the city’s poorest neighborhoods.

The shelter will include a small community kitchen, a toilet, a laundry room, and an outdoor patio.

Residents will also have access to a small gym, a laundromat, and a hot tub. 

The Twin Cities has the highest rate of homelessness in the country, according to a recent report from the nonprofit housing charity HousingWorks. 

This new shelter is part of a larger effort by the city to tackle homelessness, which has exploded over the past several years.

Last year, there were 2,918 homeless people living in Minneapolis, according the city.

In 2018, there are more than 8,000. 

According to the Twin States Housing Authority, more than 4,500 people have been housed at the city shelters since the beginning of 2017. 

Some of the housing will be in private residences, which can be rented out.

Some residents will also be housed in city apartments. 

It’s unclear if the shelter will be equipped with heat, lighting, or a toilet. 

Officials have said the new shelter will only be in place for a short period of time, and that residents will have to find another housing option.
