The Pine River Housing and Redevelopment Authority of Pine River, Minnesota was formed by the city of Pine River in 1968 to pursue the goal of adding housing in our community for low income and elderly residents.
As a result of nearly five years of effort on the part of a five-member board of directors (one of whom is still serving), ten ranch style family homes and a 30 unit apartment building, Norway Brook Apartments, were built in late 1973. Five years later, another 30 unit senior apartment buidling, Heartland Apartments, was built in late 1978.
The HRA manages these 70 units and also works to facilitate further housing development in the community by partnering with independent developers to build more rental housing for lower income level tenants. To date, a 12 unit townhouse project, Pine River Square (1997), Built and managed by CEPCO, of Hopkins, MN has been accomplished through using the Tax Credit Financing Program through Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. The HRA partnered again with CEPCO, to build another 12 units of townhouses, Kinler Square Townhouses, to be opperated as affordabe housing rentals.

Havenwood….where residents are cared for without regard to age, sex, race, color, creed, religion, handicap, or national origin. The Home is licensed by the State of Minnesota, certified for Medicare and Medicaid, and complies with all standards mandated by regulating agencies.
Havenwood Care Center (formerly Beltrami County Nursing Home) has a long history of caring for the elderly. Originally, long-term care services were provided at the Lake Julia farm, 15 miles north of Bemidji. From 1917 until 1968, that facility was one of the few in the region dedicated to the ill and aged who required long-term care. In 1968, the old home was retired and a new 85 bed facility opened at our current location. In 1974, a 48 bed addition extended capacity to 133 beds. We currently utilize 90 beds.
Although the site has changed, the same dedication and spirit of love and understanding exists. We continue our pledge to maintain the highest possible standards of nursing care and to provide social, recreational, intellectual, spiritual, physical and re-motivational activities specifically designed to meet individual needs.
Havenwood is a place where the joys, frustrations, and excitement of living are shared by residents and staff.
