Thanks to support from Northwest Area Foundation, our monthly Community Power-Ups bring practical education on work, finances, legal issues, housing and more to people in Greater Saint Paul. Participants learn how to take good care of their legal and financial concerns, boost their ability to solve problems in their lives, and form a community of supporters.
The evenings begin with music from Twin Cities Mobile Jazz Project and a hot meal. The sessions will be videotaped to ensure the info can be shared widely.
