OUR VISION Opportunity grows and poverty recedes when people of faith invest themselves in effective action.
Your gift supports our programs:
DEPARTMENT OF INDIAN WORK We provide food and services for American Indian families and educational support for American Indian youth. Last year, our food shelf provided 185,467 pounds of food to 2,457 families and 75 American Indian students received culturally relevant after-school and summer education support.
PROJECT HOME Our overnight shelter and day center help families experiencing homelessness stabilize and then build economic mobility. Last year (due to COVID), we moved into Provincial House to provided 19,602 shelter-bed nights for 105 families in a socially distanced setting. With the support of our Rapid Exit Case Worker Team, 34 families moves into permanent, affordable housing.
OPPORTUNITY SAINT PAUL We match volunteers with highly effect nonprofit partners to provide tutoring and job coaching to build economic mobility. Last year, volunteers gave 3,830 hours to help build economic mobility for individuals and families. Those same volunteers also attended numerous learning community events to better understand how to make a dent in poverty.
COMMUNITY POWER-UP Interfaith Action offers free legal assistance and practical educational opportunities and resources that help people build economic mobility. Our legal rights video series offers support for rental assistance, criminal expungement, work safety, with more topics planned for the coming year. Our Power-Up Legal Clinic provides twice-monthly free legal support for civil issues.
We allocate a portion of all donations to core mission support (which includes administrative and development activities). This ensures effective delivery of Interfaith Action's programs and services to those in greatest need.
