ROSEVILLE, MINN. (Aug. 23, 2018) — This fall, the public has an opportunity to help area families in need when they visit four BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation Dream Homes during the Parade of Homes. When visitors tour these high-end homes, they are asked for a tax-deductible $5 admission at the door, which supports work of the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation, the charitable arm of BATC-Housing First Minnesota. The Foundation builds and remodels homes for community members facing housing challenges with a focus on veterans in need.
