Hope Community is a nonprofit working as a catalyst for change, growth and safety in the Phillips neighborhood south of downtown Minneapolis.
Phillips has almost 20,000 residents and a long history of minority and immigrant populations, including Native American and African American communities.
Currently, roughly 75 percent of Phillips residents are people of color; the increasingly diverse population includes many Latino and African immigrants.
The median income in the neighborhood is approximately a third of the median income for the Twin Cities.
Hope Community is building a sustainable neighborhood model through community organization, active education, leadership and affordable housing development.
Learn more about Hope Community’s vision and work at tomorrow night’s event. If you’re interested in helping out at the event, join Twin Cities Rotaract volunteers as they serve drinks and appetizers throughout the evening.
