This summer, we’re starting outreach and organizing in the Riverview Corridor, which runs from downtown Saint Paul to the airport and Mall of America. And we’re kicking off a summer fundraising campaign to support our community engagement efforts. We have a goal of raising $2,500 by the end of summer. Here’s the page to donate.
Collaboration with Transportation Options has helped families eliminate barriers and get to employment and child care. It has empowered them to get a job or get out in the community, get groceries. Over 90 percent of our families are fleeing domestic violence or have experienced family violence during their lifetimes. Gaining skills of self-sufficiency is really important for them. Being able to be independent, and having support while they are learning how to do that, has been vital.
