High Rise Housing

For seniors, individuals with special needs and others, High-Rise Public Housing provides an affordable alternative to high-priced specialized living facilities while still offering high quality care and assistance. Tenants here have access to three levels of assisted care—and some of the best views in town. Four high-rise facilities have skywalks joining two Community Centers. The Rainbow Center serves King Manor, Tri-Towers and Grandview Manor. The Lincoln Park Center serves Midtowne Manor I & II. The Centers offer social & cultural events, computer labs, exercise classes, lectures, craft activities, bingo, senior dining and much more.

Step 1: Apply
Take a look at the FAQ entitled, “Do I Qualify For Housing Assistance?” If you meet the requirements, your first step is to fill out an Application form, which can be downloaded from our home page, or you may call 218-529-6300 and asked for one to be mailed to you.  Once completed and signed, the application can be returned in person, by fax, or by mail to:

After the application materials are reviewed, you will be contacted by a housing representative who will verify your information. Upon approval, you will be placed on our High-Rise Housing waiting list.

Step 2: Move
When a unit that fits your needs becomes available, you will be contacted by a housing representative. In addition to basic housing, support services will be provided on an as-needed basis. Living options range from complete independence to personalized levels of assisted living care. Assisted living care includes meal preparation, housekeeping services and medical care, provided by Interim Health Care.

Step 3: Enjoy
Several of our high-rise facilities include community centers, which provide daily activities and entertainment options. All of our facilities offer educational programs and well-appointed common areas for visiting and socializing.
