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 Economic Development Council; become a coach or tutor; help us provide child-care; or use your church van to transport new workers to their jobs.
