Housing project benefits those without homes

Email

DETROIT LAKES - Homelessness in Detroit Lakes and the surrounding area isn't characterized by panhandlers begging for loose change on street corners or "bums" taking refuge in city parks.

Instead, the homeless are hidden, staying with friends or family until times get better.

Becker County and Mahube Community Council hope to put a dent in the homeless population with the ongoing construction of the West River Townhomes.
