Our last day of distribution at YWCA’s Resource Hub was Saturday, May 1, 2021. In assessing a long-term plan for the program, we recognized that many organizations already do the great work of connecting people to food and supplies and have years of expertise in this area. We decided we could better serve our community by partnering with these organizations to guide neighbors to existing resources.
YWCA Minneapolis will continue to pilot a smaller-scale Resource Hub program model focusing on resource navigation support. This program will initially be focused on connecting Girls and Youth participants and their families to community resources.
It has been an honor to serve our community through the Resource Hub over the last year. Thank you to the many volunteers, donors, partners and supporters who have been part of this amazing effort. We know that this news may cause some disruption to our neighbors’ lives. To help make the adjustment easier, we’ve developed an expansive resource list online that links to aid and support across the Twin Cities. Community members can also contact Kristen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 612-999-7469 to get help finding food or supplies.
