Hennepin County commissioners are taking actions to fight area homelessness and to help those in need of shelter stay off the streets.

The county board voted Tuesday to accept state funding to create housing and to help people find housing within the community.


The Navigation Center on Cedar Avenue in South Minneapolis was designed as a temporary shelter to house up to 120 people through the winter.

The Navigation Center will remain open through May and in June, construction will begin on permanent housing.
