On the one hand, some families have a level of choice in the face of housing and income constraints. A Pew report finds that when families move in together multi-generationally, financial burden may be eased.

Another report looks at homelessness among vets, including data for Minnesota. Lastly, check out a useful summary of policy ideas for sustainability for housing development and preservation.
