Journey Home USA

About Us

Founded in 2008, Journey Home Minnesota (formerly called Shoreview Area Housing Initiative) provides access to affordable, single-family homes in safe neighborhoods that have positive educational opportunities for struggling populations. Our unique operating model assists individuals who are not able to find and purchase a home, or obtain financing, maintain a household in a traditional neighborhood.
