Resource Hub at YWCA Midtown

YWCA Minneapolis is here for our neighbors in need. We have created a pop-up hub at YWCA Midtown to ensure our neighbors have personal hygiene items and connections to vital resources. Read our story.

Resource Hub Updates

Updated 11.24.20

The Resource Hub will be closed Nov. 28, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.

Due to the governor’s order, we are not currently hosting resource connection appointments; this service will resume when permitted. We will continue distributing hygiene kits on Saturdays from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm (excluding the dates above). We no longer offer service on Wednesdays.

Find Food/Supply Distribution and Other Community Resources

Pick Up Supplies & Find Resources

Open to everyone! You can pick up supplies and meet with rotating community partners who can help offer information on job training, ESL classes, health insurance and more.

YWCA Midtown’s Resource Hub uses an online reservation system to help ensure the safety and comfort of our community members, and to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We rely on donations from the community and may not have every personal care item available.

Need help making a reservation? Email us at distribution@ywcampls.org or call 612-999-7469 to make an appointment. If you need an interpreter, please call 612-348-2193.
