Updates: HRA Temporary Rental Assistance, Tutoring Services for Youth

Olmsted County HRA Approved Temporary Rental Assistance

The Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) approved $1Million in emergency funding for a temporary rental assistance program to assist renters who have been affected by COVID 19.  This will assist low income renters who have been affected by the pandemic and the landlords who might otherwise lose income.  I supported this HRA action.

Youth Commission Provides Tutoring Services

The Youth Commission (sponsored by the Olmsted County Board) has taken action to help school-age kids with a tutoring service.  This is a free peer tutoring service.  If you know of someone who needs help with school work please have them go to this website:  https://livingroomtutors.org

If you know someone who would like to be a peer tutor, please direct them to the same website:  https://livingroomtutors.org

I support the Youth Commission and am continually impressed by they work they do for the community.  Community leaders of tomorrow can be found among the members of the Youth Commission.

National Foster Care Month

May is National Foster Care Month.  My thanks go out to all the Foster Care providers in Olmsted County.  Did you know 237 children and more than 700 adults have been serviced through the Olmsted County Child and Adult Foster Care and in Community Residential Homes?

Thank you, Foster Care Providers, you give a needed and important service.
