Loaves and Fishes - saving lives one room at a time

In 2007, St. Louis County and the city of Duluth came up with a ten-year plan to end homelessness.

In October, the Homelessness in Minnesota survey found over 600 people with nowhere to live.

The Loaves and Fishes community and CHUM in Duluth organized the first Housing for All Summit; now a partnership of groups county-wide puts it on every year.  Our reporter Josie Fan attended the conference ... with a stop at Loaves and Fishes on the way.

Follow-up meetings will be held next week in Duluth and on the Range. You can learn more about the Summit, read reports and see photographs here:

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
