Helping others and changing lives is at the heart of Good in the 'Hood, a Minneapolis Program partner with Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities. Each year, hundreds of dedicated volunteer individuals and groups join with us in serving and providing essential resources for those in need. Giving back in a manner that counts is such a privilege and a life-changing experience, both for the recipients of our services and for those who partner with us in hand and heart.

We continue to grow and have seen many changed lives; however there is still so much to accomplish. Each year, hundreds of desperate and hurting people are given practical support and personal advocacy through Good in the ‘Hood. None of this would be possible without YOU, our faithful and generous volunteers, partners and financial supporters. Because of you, we’re able to continue providing practical services and life-changing opportunities for those with the most need.

Thank you for being a part of Good in the 'Hood and for joining with us in our mission “to influence, inspire and impact individuals, families and entire communities for good.” With your help and ongoing support, we will continue to impact the community one life at a time.

We are very pleased with our growing community impact in 2016 that included the following highlights:


Students and families provided with food subsidies and essential groceries


Families Received Thanksgiving baskets


Families with children received holiday sponsorships


Individuals received new or gently used footwear


Hungry People received hot meals


Backpacks with essential supplies provided for children and homeless youth
