board and lodge

Six months ago, a group of Duluthians brought their concerns to local political candidates, asking them to take specific steps to address their issues.

Part of the Local Solutions to Poverty Candidate Forum included the commitment to a follow-up Accountability Session this spring.

In this first part of a three part report, we hear about  efforts to reform GRH (Group Residential Housing) and implement the Landlord Incentive Program.

After spending enough time homeless, Andy Moe of Duluth was relieved to move into a board-and-lodge facility.

But he was frustrated by the lack of space and privacy, the inability to access his own medications or save money toward an apartment, and he talked to the candidates about the need for reform when it comes to board and lodge facilities.
