The study is important for identifying some of the causes, effects, and circumstances of homelessness in Minnesota. The information gathered is used to guide program development and to support requests for funding at the federal, state and local levels.

Volunteers are needed specifically in Anoka County to conduct face-to-face interviews with households who may be unsheltered.
