Our mission is advancing the status of women. We help women gain access to education, health care, legal & economic resources.

We are a chartered club of Zonta International, a volunteer service organization dedicated to advancing the status of women and serving our community through service, financial contributions, and scholarship offerings. Zonta envisions a world where every woman is literate and has access to education, health care, legal and economic resources.  In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.

Some of the local programs Zonta of Minneapolis work with and support include:

Heartland Girls Ranch
“Healing Youth, Building Lives Through Success” - Heartland Girls’ Ranch (HGR) is a working ranch and residential group home licensed by the Department of Corrections for girls ages 12-21. HGR serves an average of 40-50 girls each year providing housing, supportive services, mental health and chemical dependency support, equine therapy and a dedicated school for the girls in our program. HGR has many programs including the Strides Transitional Housing Program, as well as dedicated programs and services in our Hearts for Freedom Program for girls who have been sexually exploited/trafficked.

Breaking Free
Breaking Free has become one of the nation’s leading organizations for working with victims and survivors of sex trafficking and prostitution. Over the last 18 years, Breaking Free has served more than 6,000 clients and reached over 22,000 individuals via street outreach while systematically growing its programming to embrace a full continuum of care.  Every year, Breaking Free helps an average of 400-500 women and girls escape systems of prostitution and sexual exploitation through advocacy, direct services, housing, and education.

Women Achieving New Direction
Women Achieving New Directions provides career exploration and job-upgrading services to low-income, employed single mothers who are financially supporting their children. Services provided are educational workshops and individual employment counseling.  Participants learn how to negotiate salaries, build a professional network, create powerful resumes and cover letters, and gain valuable interview skills. 

Scholarship Programs
Zonta also has a number of scholarship programs that are awarded annually. These scholarships are awarded to women locally to help further their college or university education.  The 3 scholarships are the Jane Klausman Women in Business, Myrtle Lee, and the Young Women in Public Affairs awards.  These are awarded to women pursuing a business or business related degree who demonstrate outstanding potential in their field, single mothers pursuing education, and young women who participate in public and political life that are committed to the volunteer sector and are dedicated to advancing the status of women. 

Are you aware that the better off women are, the better off their children and families are, and in turn, the communities in which they live benefit too?
