Center of Belonging

Charity Collaborative Providing Client-Centered Services

A collaborative charity space

To get all of the services one person needs, that person may need to walk through several doors in a single day: a door for food, a door for shelter, a door for treatment, and a door for therapy and social services.   

That is why we’ve partnered with Ace in the City, Wayside Recovery, Render Free, Rooted Green Wellness, Ace kids clubhouse & Second Harvest to provide a holistic approach to charity and social services of a kind that is totally unique in Minnesota: The Center of Belonging.

At the Center of Belonging, a woman with various needs can walk through one door and find what she needs behind it.  Her needs will be triaged and she will be directed to the services she needs all in one place.

At this “one-stop shop” Emerge moms can receive job counseling, visit a food shelf, access mental health and social work services, receive alcohol and drug treatment services, have a safe place for their kids to play, and be part of a supportive community!

Will you donate now? 

Your gift of $25, $50, $100, or $300 will make the Center of Belonging a safe and welcoming space for moms to rebuild.  You will provide paint, comfortable furnishings for our private mental health & social work suite, a desk for our client intake and administrative area, a table and chairs for our work preparation space, toys and books for a children’s play space, and more.

On behalf of the moms and kids you will impact, thank you!

We will expand services to this site and continue offering services at our other four sites.
