Union Park & Lex-Ham Solidarity Fund

The Union Park & Lex-Ham Solidarity Fund is a grassroots funding effort to provide economic relief for residents in Union Park. We launched the Solidarity Fund in May 2020, inspired by and in solidarity with our partners at the West Side Community Organization. COVID-19 was already impacting our communities, and the events in the Twin Cities over the summer have changed our neighborhoods forever.

Our goal is to provide housing assistance through one-time, $500 grants to households, to be administered by Keystone Community Services. Keystone will also help connect residents with additional resources available in the community, as we know too many of our neighbors have been impacted by COVID-19 and other challenges. 

We can't do it without you!  

Please donate today so  families can have access to emergency financial assistance.

Union Park is an area of Saint Paul between the Mississippi River and Lexington Avenue, and University and Summit Avenues, including Merriam Park, Snelling-Hamline, and Lexington-Hamline neighborhoods.
