MNPHA relies on evidence and research to inform our work of advocating for and supporting our non-profit housing provider members. Supporting research like Sarah’s gives us information that we use for developing best practice and for
advocating with government on your behalf. Your willingness to support Sarah’s research is appreciated by MNPHA and her findings will be shared with our members at the 2017 MNPHA Building Partnerships Conference in November.
