About the Center for Changing Lives Minneapolis
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota opened the Center for Changing Lives Minneapolis in 2008. It is a partnership of mission driven private and government organizations providing health and human services, as well as affordable housing for children, adults and families of the greater Minneapolis and Phillips Park area.
The mission of the Center for Changing Lives Minneapolis is to bring people together, transform lives and create a vital community. It is located in the heart of Minneapolis’ Phillips West neighborhood, and is a place where individuals and families can thrive. We provide a welcoming space where community members can connect and share a meal, volunteer, see work by local artists and find resources.
We invite everyone to take part in the extraordinary things that are happening here.
The services and ministries of the Center for Changing Lives are holistic and inclusive. They exist to enhance the practical and spiritual well-being of any individual regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, disability or age. This is done through services and partnerships that touch all aspects of life.
The Center offers 48-units of affordable housing. Additional services include job training, counseling, financial services, wellness education, child care and education for children up to 12 years old, a neighborhood organization, health care screenings, a café, Messiah Lutheran Church, African American Aids Task Force, the Oromo Culture Institute of Minnesota, Reading and Math Serve to Grow, a bi-monthly food shelf and more.
