December: We are Supporting Families in Need
With a vision that every person has a home and is interconnected within community, Aeon’s mission is to create and sustain quality, affordable homes that strengthen lives and communities. Our preservation and construction projects knit long-term affordability into communities, ensuring opportunity and access for all—not just those with the highest income. Aeon owns and manages 5,580 affordable apartment homes across 58 properties in the Twin Cities region. We serve 12,000 residents each year.
Ampersand Families recruits and supports permanent families for older youth, and champions practices in adoption and permanency that restore belonging, dignity and hope.
We help move Minnesota's oldest, longest waiting youth out of foster care into permanent families where they can heal from trauma with the help of a loving, well-supported parent at their side. We provide extraordinary post placement supports at no cost and for as long as youth and families need it.
For the last 48 years, Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) has provided basic needs services to target issues of homelessness, food insecurity, health disparities, lack of transportation and economic mobility. Through programs like Meals on Wheels, grocery delivery, a free food market, senior and school mobile food markets, senior health and wellness activities and resource navigation, CEAP has become a trusted and reliable source of information, provision and community connection.
Gifts for Seniors provides donated gifts and life-affirming personal contact for isolated older adults in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and surrounding communities through the engagement of thousands of volunteers, individual donors, companies, and community partners.
Gifts for Seniors serves more than 6,500 isolated seniors annually by providing much needed resources. Please join us in bringing joy and human connection to those feeling alone and forgotten!
