Baton Rouge flood Relief

40,000 homes and hundreds of churches have suffered significant losses.  Many thousands of families have lost everything, 

Help us help Baton Rouge chuches show God's love.

Hope United CDC, Global Horizons, Inc and Hosanna Emergency Action Response Team (HEART)  have quickly formed a collaborative relief effort that especially targets flooded African American communities.  Working in partnership with a group of predominantly African American congregations in the Baton Rouge area, we seek to help the church help thousands of people in dire need.  In an open conference call, we received first-hand descriptions of churches and tens of thousands of households that have lost everything. Because they are in a geographic zone where there is no flood insurance,  these churches and families desperately need our help today.  Initially, they need funds.  We are also collecting materials that we will ship around the end of August.


Make a financial contribution to meet urgent immediate needs. please go to

Donate materials.  

Assemble a team of volunteers or join an existing team to travel to Baton Rouge and work with our desperate partners.

To obtain information on how to donate materials and supplies and volunteer,  please contact Jill Hall at or via text/phone at 612-245-8718.

North Minneapolis Prayer and Presence

Hennepin County's data indicates that 67% of North-Minneapolis residents are dependent upon public assistance.  That is intolerable and we are making changes! Imagine the impact that 1,200  north-side residents entering the workforce will have on community development in North-Minneapolis and on growing the Twin Cities' shrinking work-force!beyond!  To actualize this vision, a collective of North-side nonprofits, including Hope United CDC, has connected with the Minneapolis Foundation, Hennepin County, and the MN State Dept. of Human Services to help heads of households on welfare   obtain holistic, certified  training for career positions.

There are lots of ways to help: Join our Urban Suburban Business or Congregation Leaders'  Council; become a coach or tutor; help us provide child-care; or use your church van to transport new workers to their jobs.


In their “One Minneapolis” community indicators report, the Minneapolis Foundation confirms that in the aggregate, the academic performances of students of color declines from grades 6 through high school.   Through our African American Male Alliance, we provide a constellation of services that support learning readiness. We connect mentors to students, rally community advocacy and assets in support of  the school, and serve as a bridge for connecting people, congregations other organizations and resources to help kids and families win.
