Description

Taking on a new role at Aeon right before the pandemic struck has highlighted Sarah Harris’ personal mission to make Minneapolis a better place for children. (Prior to Aeon, she helped launch the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District.) The pandemic has made Aeon’s role providing stable affordable housing for low- to mid-income Twin Citians even more vital, since many of its residents have faced layoffs, furloughs, and isolation. Harris and Aeon plan to continue to expand affordable housing opportunities and advocate for philanthropic and public funding and policies that make stable housing possible.
