St. Stephen’s Human Services provides programming to people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Hennepin County. Founded forty years ago by volunteers at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church of Minneapolis, the organization helps people secure affordable housing, employment support, emergency services such as shelter, and opportunities to work on changing systems that create or perpetuate homelessness. The human service programs were incorporated as a nonprofit independent of the Catholic Church in 2002.
