Blue Earth County Housing Programs
The Mankato and Blue Earth County Economic Development Authorities (EDA) provide two housing assistance programs.
CADA’s shelter is an inclusive, family-friendly, and survivor-centered space for women and children seeking safety from relationship abuse or sexual violence. Their shelter is located in Mankato, Minnesota, and can house about 22 people at a time. On average, people stay in shelter for 2 or 3 months – some people need less time, and some people need more time.
