Individualized Housing Options instead of Alternative Housing Options

In the spring of 2011, Ramsey County issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for "Service options to support people in their own homes". The purpose of the RFP was to provide innovative and individualized support to individuals with finding appropriate housing options. Olu's Home, Inc. (OLU'S HOME INC.) was one of the 11 providers that were selected to partner with Ramsey County. Later on, in that same year, Hennepin County issued the same RFP and once again OLU'S HOME INC. was selected to partner this time with Hennepin County. OLU'S HOME INC.'s goal with this service is to offer services customized to each individual's needs. We offer an array of services that individuals may choose which fits his/her wants and needs, including but not limited to:
