  • We are committed to enhancing trauma-informed practices and advancing a focused effort on racial equity and social justice.
  • Our mission and vision are grounded in Catholic Social Teaching to serve those most in need.

  • Managed over 1,000 residential units for single adults and youth.
  • Provided over 3,5000 nights of assisted care through our medical respite programs.
  • Ran two daytime opportunity center for adults seeking meals, healthcare, hygiene, and services.

What were our outcomes last year?

  • 79% of children at Northside Child Development Center are on track for school readiness in all areas, an increase from 70% over the previous year.
  • Advocacy and Engagement efforts resulted in increases to Emergency Services Program and Housing Support funds to support our shelters and residences, policy improvements in support of housing stability, and $7 million (FY21-22) in COVID-related public funding.

How can you help?

Our work in the Twin Cities is not possible without support from our community. This year, we have a goal to raise $100,000! Every dollar raised will help single adults, children and families, and those with disabilities not only survive – but thrive. Thank you for investing in our community!
