Wilder continues to adapt to keep clients, participants, staff and volunteers healthy and safe. Our services focus on being proactive, nimble, and resilient in order to make an impact in the community.

Your support helps ensure people in our community can access:

  • Housing support so that families and young people have a stable place to call home. Your gift to Wilder helps provide housing services for 1,700+ people transitioning from homelessness and direct cash assistance to ensure housing expenses are affordable. At a time when so many are facing housing and income instability, you can help people remain housed and supported.
  • Mental health and wellness services for children and adults. Your gift to Wilder helps provide 2,400+ people a chance to heal and access to culturally affirming care that affirms the resiliency that people have to adapt during these challenging times. 
  • Childcare and family support. Your gift to Wilder provides emotional and social support for 80+ young children and 1,000+ students that helps stabilizes their entire family. We continue to serve families needing childcare and provide support services in partnership with schools.
  • Meal deliveries and programming so older adults and caregivers remain connected and healthy. Your gift to Wilder helps deliver 37,000+ meals and critical programming for 480+ older adults and people with disabilities every year.
  • Leadership programs for diverse community changemakers. Your gift to Wilder provides support so BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) community leaders gain access to influence and enact public policy at Minnesota's Capitol.
  • Research and evaluation that sheds light on complex issues and creates understanding of what works best for families in our community. Your gift to Wilder helps us to partner with 160+ organizations every year on topics important to a vibrant community.

We are all in this together, and Wilder continues to support and help strengthen families throughout the community. Support for Wilder has never been more important. Visit wilder.org to learn more.
