Report: More homeless kids found in Minnesota's biggest cities

A new report from the Minnesota Housing Partnership indicates that homelessness is ticking upward, and so are rents.

There’s good news for homeowners – home prices are rebounding in the Twin Cities. But the news was worse for the less affluent.

The report says there were more than 9,000 homeless children in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth public school districts combined throughout the school year, with 1,000 of those newly homeless.

And rents in the Twin Cities in the second quarter of this year went up by $17 to an average of $951 per month, MPR notes. The vacancy rate sat at a low 2.7 percent.
