The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Whittier Supportive Housing Project.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

Whittier, Stevens Square, and Loring Park neighborhoods in Minneapolis expressed concerns about the concentration of supportive housing and social services in their neighborhoods. These concerns included impacts on community livability, the safety of vulnerable populations, and potential adverse effects on neighborhood development and revitalization efforts. In 2001 the Plymouth Church Neighborhood Foundation proposed a 40-unit facility (Lydia House) for a former nursing home site on LaSalle Avenue. A joint task force of the Whittier Alliance and Stevens Square Community Organization (SSCO) determined that the existing concentration of supportive housing is already extreme, especially when compared to the city as a whole. To support the work of the Task Force, the Whittier Alliance collected data on supportive housing facilities and mapped both City and neighborhood recognized sites and their relationships to the proposed site on LaSalle.
