We help people and change lives.

Some of the fondest memories of Minnesotans include frolicking in the snow as young children: sledding, making snow angels and snowmen, climbing on snowbanks as high as mountains, and then going inside for a change of mittens when they got soaked and a cup of hot chocolate when play was done for the day.

Since 1965 Mahube-Otwa has been helping low-income families in our service area reach for their dreams.  Last year, our services touched about one in four people living in our five-county service area (Mahnomen, Hubbard, Becker, Otter Tail, and Wadena).  We provide a range of services that goes beyond what is listed below to help people help themselves. Our service-delivery is guided by our values of being client-focused, community-minded, and resourceful.

In 2018, our work at Mahube-Otwa led to:

  • Assisting 106 Senior Citizens with rent, deposits, and counseling to help preventing homelessness 
  • 574 patients receiving health care exams, screenings, education, and immunizations at one of our clinics
  • Approximately 700 children enrolled in Head Start to help prepare them for kindergarten and helping parents/caregivers set goals for success
  • 1,450 federal income tax returns were e-filed for elderly and low-income people
  • Our Home & Chore program helping over 175 persons age 60 and over per quarter with yard work, snow removal, decluttering, and moving expenses to aid in their "aging in place"
  • 6,549 households received energy assistance

Each of these numbers represent real people whose hopes have been realized by our mission to "Empower People to Achieve Self-Sufficiency."

Please join us in helping our communities become stronger and healthier. Thank you!
