BI-CAP was one of three agencies statewide that received funding for the Homework Starts with Home Program through Minnesota Housing. The program comprehensively serves families with school age children and youth enrolled in the Red Lake School District #38, Bemidji School District #31, Voyageurs Expeditionary School and TrekNorth Junior and Senior High School with rental assistance and support services. The program strives to provide housing stability for homeless children and youth with the ultimate goal of increasing school attendance and positive educational outcomes as well as to break the cycle of homelessness. This is truly a community effort with many local entities participating. Homework Starts with Home is a collaborative project partnering with Red Lake School District #38, Bemidji School District #31, Voyageurs Expeditionary School, TrekNorth Junior and Senior High School, Beltrami County Social Services, Northwest Minnesota Foundation, Evergreen Youth and Family Services and Village of Hope.
