Thank you for valuing our leadership in North Minneapolis!

NorthPoint was created by the community, for the community in 1968, with the vision to address longstanding health disparities and create a more just society. Back then, we were "Pilot City," one of thirteen neighborhood-based health & human services hubs established across the nation in the wake of civil unrest over racial and economic injustice.

Today, our vision for a more just society lives on in our work to provide housing, nutrition, education, employment, and more to address the impacts of structural and systemic racism. We're proud to partner with the diverse and resilient residents of North Minneapolis and the northern suburbs to help people overcome the many barriers that still exist and work alongside them to create a healthier community.


The pandemic has exacerbated racial disparities and made the work we do at NorthPoint more important now than ever before.

With support from donors like you, we can: 

- Maximize equitable distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine at our welcoming clinic in the heart of the culturally rich community we serve. 

- See to it that community members at risk of homelessness stay housed and address individual and societal barriers to their housing instability.

- Ensure families, seniors, and others have ready access to fresh, healthy, culturally appropriate food when they need it.

- Create a safer community through violence prevention programs guided by best practices for addressing the complex causes of community violence. 

- Provide culturally responsive, trauma-informed, integrated health and human services that meet people's basic needs today and help them get on a future path to optimal health, wellness, and economic security.

We are BIPOC-led and our programs and services are culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and linguistically appropriate. Individual donors are an important funding stream for our programs and services, and every dollar makes a difference.

Your contribution today will increase our efforts to be strategically nimble during this time of uncertainty. With continuing unknowns as we head into 2022, flexibility will be critical as we work to address both the challenges and opportunities the coming year will bring.

On behalf of the individuals and families we serve, thank you for partnering with us to create a healthier community!
