A family member died recently and we needed to contact the Ethiopian Community in Minnesota. We got a response in a few minutes! I know this community for 2 decades. The response was very fast and we got the service we needed on the same day.
Thank you Ethiopian Community ( specially ato Mesfin)

The Ethiopian community in mn helped me and my husband in several occasions. What is interesting is the fact that the community doesn;t have a lot of resources and yet helps a lot of individuals in housing and job search. Keep it up guys

I just volunteered for Ethiopian Community in Minnesota with my friend. We had so much fun contacting other fellow Ethiopians and reminding them to get involved in anyway they can. We had profoundingly positive reception from everyone we called too, it was inspiring. I will definetly volunteer again to get this organization going stronger than it already is.

I served as a board member of this Ethiopian Community about 10 years ago. After my term is over, I still volunteer annually, especially on the Ethiopian New Year. Although Ethiopian Community had had its challenges, things are turning around since 2012. In fact, the recent initiative of the Community to acquire its own building is a testament of the progress.

I volunteered for this community for almost 4 months now. It is a rewarding experience for me as I witnessed its activities expand helping new immigrants getting directions, dealing with immigration issues and everything else.
I highly recommend Ethiopian Community in Minnesota, especially if you are a good listener of people challenged by socioeconomic issues.
