Lake Harriet UMC supports Hennepin Avenue UMC’s Dignity Center

The Dignity Center works with people to achieve and maintain stability. Participants engage with one advocate, make and keep appointments, set goals and report actions taken to achieve those goals. We work together on stability skills such as problem solving, decision making, organization and budgeting. Progress is measured as improved housing, increased financial situation, completed education and training, obtained employment, and supportive community.
The Dignity Center is located at 425 Groveland Ave, Minneapolis. To learn more about the Dignity Center, click here to visit their website.
