Supportive housing for families in Shakopee

Pointe the way home!

Prairie Pointe will significantly reduce the numbers of families in Scott and Carver counties who are experiencing homelessness, offering them the stability of a home where parents and children alike can flourish.

The Essentials

  • About 50 high-quality, well-managed apartment homes.
  • Homes for families who make less than $30,000 a year.
  • One, two, and three-bedroom apartments.
  • Individualized on-site support services.

Why Shakopee?

  • Scenic parks, world-class entertainment, a growing economy and highly-regarded schools are ideal for families.
  • Family homelessness is rising in Carver and Scott counties. Prairie Pointe will provide homes for many of these families, offering them stability where parents and children alike can flourish.
  • We value looking out for one another. It’s a big piece of what makes towns like Shakopee great places to live and grow.

Supportive Housing

  • Tailored support helps children do better in school, parents increase income, and families improve long-term health.
  • Supportive housing is a proven model for ending homelessness and housing instability for families.
