In 2007, St. Louis County and the city of Duluth came up with a ten-year plan to end homelessness.

In October, the Homelessness in Minnesota survey found over 600 people with nowhere to live.

The Loaves and Fishes community and CHUM in Duluth organized the first Housing for All Summit; now a partnership of groups county-wide puts it on every year.  Our reporter Josie Fan attended the conference ... with a stop at Loaves and Fishes on the way.
