cora's journey

Cora began volunteering 3 years ago and continues to look forward to every Thursday evening, volunteering in People Serving People’s Education and Enrichment programs. As she says, her nights volunteering “often turn out to be some of my best evenings of the week. Every interaction I am able to have with the children makes me proud to help People Serving People.”

People Serving People helps homeless and at-risk children and their families manage crisis situations and build a strong foundation for their long-term success.

People Serving People is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota. We envision a community in which all children have the stability and support they need to develop their full capacity to thrive.
