Tour goers on the Fall Parade of Homes will once again have the chance to help area families in need when they visit five Dream Homes on the tour. These five exceptional homes are the only homes on the tour where attendees pay a tax-deductible $5 admission at the door or purchase an all-access pass online to tour all the Dream Homes. This money raised supports the work of the Housing First Minnesota Foundation, the charitable arm of Housing First Minnesota.
The Foundation taps the talents and resources of the association’s member builders, remodelers, trade partners, and volunteers to support our communities by building and remodeling safe housing for Minnesotans in need.
Tickets to tour the five Dream Homes are available online at ParadeofHomes.org and in-person at the Dream Homes. An all-access pass to tour all five Dream Homes, plus the Remodeled Dream Home open the final weekend, can be purchased online at ParadeofHomes.org.
