The Family Place Needs Your Help Now!

Imagine… living in your vehicle on nights such as these. Thirteen families did not have to imagine it, they were living it – revving the engine when it got too cold, but fearful of running low on gas and all that that would mean. Ramsey County Human Services has requested the immediate assistance of The Family Place to provide day shelter, educational programming for all members of the family, and three hot meals and two snacks each day for the thirty-eight family members that will be welcomed to The Family Place.

How can you help?
This week we need volunteers to assist staff with: youth activities, kitchen and dining room duties, and check in for the new program participants. To help, please call Heath at (651) 209-6634.
