The Family Place

Imagine… living in your vehicle, couch surfing, moving from house to house. Many families do not have to imagine it, they are living it.

The Family Place services include three meals and a snack each day, shower, laundry, and storage facilities, Montessori childcare, pick up and drop off for school-aged children, budgeting/savings program, and assistance accessing services.

A comprehensive program model, entitled Going Home, was designed: Montessori, Adult Life Skills, Youth Development and Leadership Program; The Lovejoy Community Garden in partnership with The Urban Farm and Garden Alliance, Healthy Meals program, and The Night Shelter: a 16-bed home located in West St. Paul.

The Family Place has challenging goals to change the way shelter stays are spent, bring humanity back in the way shelter systems operate, and to end repeated bouts of homelessness and generational homelessness via education and empowerment leading to permanent, self-sustainability.

Day of Service

Let Your Light Shine!!

The 2nd annual SuperBOLD Women’s Empowerment Brunch is designed to celebrate women who are highly driven and motivated. The best and brightest in sports, entertainment, philanthropy, and business have been invited to join other like-minded women in an elegant setting for connection, cocktails, cuisine, and conversation focused on building a community of game-changers.

This year’s keynote speaker is Ivy McGregor, Philanthropist, Motivational Speaker, and Author.

Nicole is the brainchild behind the SuperBOLD brand, which is inspired by her love of connecting with people and encouraging them to live their best life now. She prides herself on speaking words of affirmation to those around her and has been called to create a vehicle to empower others to do the same. This year SuperBOLD will recognize The Family Place as their nonprofit partners and awardee for the outstanding service to the community!!!

“In a world where life can be cruel and fast-paced, I knew the time was now to create a platform to celebrate trailblazers in an environment conducive to the power of positive images and collaboration.” –Nicole R. Coleman
