ROSEVILLE, MINN. (August 2022) — This fall, the public has an opportunity to help area families in need when they visit five Dream Homes during the Parade of Homes. When visitors tour these incredible homes, they are asked for a tax-deductible $5 admission, which supports 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, suppliers, 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, in the Parade of Homes app and at the doors of the Dream Homes.

There is also an option to purchase an all-access pass for the Dream Homes that allows visitors to tour each of the five new Dream Homes and the two Remodeled Dream Homes for a discounted price. All-access passes must be purchased online.
