Linden Grove Veteran Apartments Opens to Its First Residents


Construction of the Linden Grove Veteran Apartments, an affordable, permanent supportive housing community with priority placement for homeless or at risk of homelessness Veterans, is complete and apartments are now available for occupancy.

Linden Grove Veteran Apartments features fully furnished, spacious studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartment homes located at 4105 12th Avenue North in St. Cloud, Minnesota.  The community includes a community room with kitchenette, TV lounge area and computer center, on-site laundry and supportive services provided by Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV).  Veterans have priority placement at the community and the goal is for 100 percent of the occupants to be Veterans.

Overall, it is the goal of the project to assist Veterans to achieve greater social and economic independence through quality, stable housing and comprehensive support services.

The target households for the community are homeless Veterans and Veterans at risk of homelessness. It is available to single adults in an alcohol free environment. It offers on-site referral support for a broad spectrum of services, including job search assistance and computer skills training, while providing Veterans close proximity to health care services. This approach grants the resident Veterans access to a wide variety of programs, specialties and disciplines in the community in which they live.

As an affordable housing community, residents need to meet income, rent, screening criteria and other qualifications. Persons interested in renting an apartment can contact Sand Property Management, LLC at (320) 258-3400.
