From what I have seen of Redeemer Center for Life is that it is an extremely positive organization dedicated to lifting up the Harrison neighborhood, which is a part of Minneapolis that often forgotten. If all organization could have as much integrity as RCFL our world would be a much better place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that the members of the Harrison community look to Redeemer Center for Life as an empowering agent.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the positive focused outlook of this organization. They try to use a strength based practice rather than a deficits based practice as is often applied to low-income neighborhoods.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

excellent and committed

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a low-income housing unit, provide wholistic job-training services, buy a mini-bus for the children it serves, and update their buildings so that the people in Harrison live in an area that puts their needs and not expenses first.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
