Building Community @ University Dale Apartments
Project for Opportunity Neighborhood

Help us build community among low-income people.

What makes a community thrive?  The answer is simple.  Social connectedness.

What is social connectedness?  It's the opportunity to build positive relationships with your neighbors and foster a sense of community.  Out of these relationships, amazing things can happen. 

Social connectedness is central to all we do and it is playing a HUGE part as we begin providing services at a new site - University Dale Apartments in St. Paul's Frogtown neighborhood.

A year ago, University Dale Apartments was an isolated community struggling with a high amount of crime.

Isolated neighbors who had never met one another are now getting together at weekly community building events, planned by the Resident Advisory Council, a group of residents that meet monthly to provide community input.

The community is becoming safer and stronger.

At a recent community dinner, a drawing was held for a grocery gift card.  The resident whose name was drawn was overjoyed and said, “Now that I won this gift card, I can eat next week!” 

Your donation will assist in providing the staff and supplies needed to provide more opportunities for resident engagement leading to a healthier and safer community.

Please join us in helping residents at University Dale Apartments by making a donation.
