The mission of Love Minneapolis, Inc. is to be a catalyst for healing and economic transformation in North Minneapolis, beginning with the corner of Broadway and Lyndale Avenues. As a Northside organization, we partner with the people and other organizations of this community to reimagine what life on the Northside of Minneapolis can be for us as residents, workers, current & future leaders.
Together, we are becoming a more just, well connected, safe community where Black and Brown people are thriving, prospering, and building generational wealth.
- Centering the dignity of all people
Love Minneapolis seeks to partner with a wide range of groups, corporations and foundations that align with the mission of bringing healing and economic opportunity to North Minneapolis. We were founded in 2020, as a sister organization to The Sanctuary Covenant Church. Spurred by the church’s efforts to address community insecurities around food and other household goods resulting from that summer’s civil unrest, there was an opportunity to reimagine life near the intersection of West Broadway and Lyndale in North Minneapolis.
Love Minneapolis was established as a separate, non-religious entity with its own Board of Directors and leadership structure. The early work of Love Minneapolis has been in partnership with The Sanctuary Covenant Church, which currently owns a significant part of the property on West Broadway between Lyndale and Aldrich Avenues and is aligned with the goal of reimagining, redeveloping, and bringing healing and opportunity to that block and the broader community.
