The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul is the home for the Minnesota Workcamp. Minnesota is known as “the Land of 10,000 Lakes”, dozens of which are located within the city limits of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Look beyond the scenic shores, beautiful beaches, and groomed walking paths, though, and you will find a number of people who struggle with poverty, homelessness and hunger. The growing number of population in need is one of the Twin Cities’ most critical issues. The Catholic HEART Workcamp Twin Cities camp works with multiple agencies striving to address the very basic needs of these residents in need.
While in the Twin Cities, you may expect to work at the homes of elderly, disadvantaged or disabled residents on revitalization, home beautification, and repair / rehab projects; or you may spend time painting (interior and/or exterior), or assisting with landscaping projects. We also work in food shelves, pack food at food banks, help out in shelters and work in low-income childcare centers along with boys and girls clubs. Each resident or agency we serve presents a unique situation. We welcome you to arrive with an open and willing attitude eager to serve wherever the Spirit leads.
