Mission

The Sanneh Foundation serves the holistic youth development needs of the increasingly diverse Twin Cities metro area. Our mission is to empower youth by supporting and promoting educational attainment through in-school and after-school support, improve lives by providing programs that strengthen physical health and social and emotional development, and unite communities by advancing diversity, equity, and community well-being.




COVID-19 Response - 

With the closure of businesses, schools, parks and community centers, the state of emergency required The Sanneh Foundation to suspend its traditional youth development programming. As an organization committed to community health and well-being, we are responding to the urgent needs of youth and families which have emerged as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, by retaining and repurposing our youth-serving workforce to meet the new realities of youth and families. 

Food Relief - 

The Sanneh Foundation is partnering with local public agencies and food security organizations to expand nutrition support services to provide over 250 families a day with meals and fresh produce at the Conway Community Center. In addition, we are sending Sanneh staff to local food shelves in order to fill operating gaps at a time when social distancing protocols prevent volunteers from supporting these facilities on-site.

Education Support - 

Metro Area Dreamline Coaches have pivoted to be a resource for teachers and students through virtual learning, tutoring and mentoring.

Childcare - 

St. Cloud Dreamline Coaches have stepped up to provide emergency childcare services to essential workers.

It is clear that COVID-19 has created new challenges and emergency needs for individuals and families in our community. The Sanneh Foundation is committed to stepping up in any way we can. In the first month of the coronavirus pandemic, our emergency response measures made the following community impact:

  • Total Individuals Served at Conway: 9,167 
  • Total Household Served at Conway: 2,016
  • Total Staff Hours of Service with Food Shelf Partners: 794 Hrs.
  • Total Staff Hours of Service at Conway: 942 Hrs.
  • Total Volunteer Hours at Conway: 157 Hrs.
  • Total Lbs. of Fresh Produce Distributed: 47,562 Lbs.


We are asking for your help now, to ensure we can continue to financially support these emergency services in this unprecedented time of crisis.
