What is Normandale Housing?
For more than 25 years Normandale Lutheran has been walking with families in the Phillip’s neighborhood of Minneapolis to help move them from living without a home to living in community-supported, permanent housing.
In response to God’s calling, Normandale Housing Corporation engages the congregation of Normandale Lutheran Church and others in serving families experiencing homelessness by providing housing and supportive services.
Our Work Together
Realizing it can take time for a family to recover and move ahead, Normandale Housing Ministry reaches out to volunteers and its alumni to provide mentorship for families and support from the community. Our focus is to make a significant impact on the Phillips neighborhood by providing stability for families and improving acceptance and understanding for individuals who have encountered this level of crisis.
Together, we can reduce homelessness – one family at a time.
