Cathy ten Broeke brings hands-on and policy experience to job
Cathy ten Broeke is the new point person on homelessness for the city of Minneapolis and Hennepin County.
She is charged with no small task in the newly created position: overseeing efforts to end chronic homelessness in Minneapolis and other cities in the county.
Despite facing a rather daunting job, ten Broeke (which means “by the brook” in Dutch) is optimistic about her work. The Linden Hills resident said she’s sensing “more political will” to combat homelessness now than ever before.
