Jeremiah Program meets the needs of single-parent families for safe, stable and affordable housing in a supportive campus environment. Currently, there are two fully functioning campuses: one in Minneapolis (39 units) and one in Saint Paul (38 units). Four duplex units opened in phase 1 in Austin, TX, in fall 2013; phase 2, a permanent campus housing 35 families, will open in 2015.
Residents live in independent, fully furnished apartments in a secure community that provides a unique combination of services, support and social interaction. This community environment not only provides a welcome level of stability and focus for families, but it also leads to supportive friendships that last long beyond graduation.

The 2–3 bedroom apartments come furnished with beds and dressers, kitchen table, living room sofa, desk, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Community spaces, on-site Child Development Centers, outdoor playgrounds, laundry facilities, and 24-hour security monitoring make these Jeremiah campuses truly supportive living environments.
Resident Council provides a forum for self-governance. Residents support each other and build collaborative relationships that last long beyond graduation.
Resident Councils at both the Minneapolis and Saint Paul campuses address community life and plan family activities. Participants work together to support each other with academic help and study groups, babysitting, transportation, and physical or mental health challenges.
Participants are required to attend monthly Resident Council meetings, and Resident Council leaders plan the agenda and conduct the meetings with guidance from staff.
