Carver County CDA celebrates National Homeownership Month with a free Home Stretch class!

Each year in June, housing agencies, realtors, and others celebrate National Homeownership Month as a way to call attention to the important role that homeownership plays in the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

To mark the occasion, we will be offering our award-winning HOME STRETCH class in June, on the 14th and 16th (participants must attend both classes to receive certificate) at no charge to participants. Home Stretch is designed for individuals and families looking to purchase a home and is required for many first-time home buyers as part of obtaining financing. That’s a $40 savings over the usual fee.

Reserve your spot by calling Jack at 952-556-2801 and registering now. Act fast – limited spots are available, and classes do fill quickly!

Invitation Brochure

Carver County CDA celebrates Housing America Month by hosting resident events at four properties.

“So cool.” “Awesome.” “Yay, I love to read.” “Thank You.” These were just some of the comments we heard at our ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate Housing America Month. The events were held on October 19th and 23rd at four of our multi-family communities!  As part of recognizing Housing America Month at the CDA, we hosted resident events around the installation of Free Little Libraries. Refreshments were served, and residents were invited to check out our new Libraries.  The families that attended were excited to have access to books right within their community. Since the Libraries have been installed, we have observed kids coming right off the school bus and stopping by the Free Little Library to pick out a book or two to read that night!  Books have been going fast but we have also received many donations of books from our residents, so the libraries have been staying full! 

 

Crossings at Town Centre receive honorable mention in the Waconia Chamber of Commerce “Season of the Scarecrow” annual contest.

Mental Health Survey

The Carver County Adult Mental Health Initiative (AMHI) and the Carver County Mental Health Advisory Council, or Local Advisory Council (LAC), have combined efforts to create a mental health needs assessment survey. If you are a resident of Carver County, aged 18 and older, and you have or have not accessed mental health services in the county, we ask you to please take a few minutes to complete this confidential survey.

Through this survey, the AMHI and LAC hope to gather pertinent information about mental health needs in our county in order to improve the availability of and access to adult mental health services, and to guide future planning of services. Your participation is completely anonymous and will not in any way affect the county mental health services you may currently receive or may choose to receive in the future.

The survey starts September 15, 2017, and will be available until October 31, 2017. It can be accessed online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/MHNeedsAssessmentSurvey. If you prefer, a paper copy, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope, will be made available upon request. Simply call First Street Center in Waconia at 952, 442-4437. A Spanish-language version is also available, either online or hard copy. Visit www.es.surveymonkey.com/r/MHSurveySpanish.

Carver County Community Conversation

Cultivating Relationships to Strengthen Partnerships

~Affordable Housing and Homelessness

Carver County CDA will be hosting a Community Conversation on September 28, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Chaska Community Center Auditorium. This will be the first Community Engagement event for Heading Home Scott Carver. Quarterly conversations will be held around affordable housing and homelessness in our community.
What does home mean to you? This is a question asked by NAHRO (National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials) every year of children living in affordable housing developments across the country.

Stable housing is not just about housing. It means connections between housing, education, transportation, health care, communities and so much more. Join us for a conversation on affordable housing and the many partnerships being cultivated in Carver County and how you can play a role.
