MISSION

The St. Olaf Community Campus exists to stabilize the community through relationship-based services that empower and serve the residents of North Minneapolis.

Drawing upon our Christian heritage, the mission of the Campus is to provide quality housing, health care, and supportive services with dignity and respect to those who need them.

Under the leadership of the Board of Directors, we will be financially sound, use our buildings and land to the benefit of those we serve, develop partnerships to strengthen the community, have a strong development program, and continually recognize our staff as an asset. In this way, we will improve the quality of life for those we serve through measurable standards.
