Happy Monday! Today’s Grantee Monday is about one of our 2019 Senior Homelessness grant recipients, House of Charity! Open Your Heart provided House of Charity with funding to make one of the bathrooms in their Food Centre fully accessible and easier to use for their senior clients.
House of Charity’s mission is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness, and empower individuals to achieve independence. House of Charity has grown from simply meeting basic needs, to addressing the root causes of an individual’s long term instability, such as chemical dependency, mental illness and lack of life skills, education and employment. House of Charity provides supportive housing to over 200 people every day and serves meals to the public 365 days of the year; being the only lunch program in Minneapolis that is open seven days a week. Thank you House of Charity for the incredible work that you do for those experiencing homelessness and facing food insecurity throughout Minneapolis.
