What distinguishes People Serving People from other emergency shelters is the broad range of on-site programs and services designed to address common barriers facing homeless families. Their ultimate goal is to permanently end a family's homelessness with one visit to their shelter. At the beginning of the project, we will be given a tour or shown the People Serving People video to provide us with a better understanding of the organization.

      In 1988, neighbors joined together to save a large parcel of land from development on the north and east sides of Cedar Lake in Minneapolis. Seeking out and inviting all interested parties to participate, the group focused on a vision-to establish a nature park in the heart of the city-and adopted a set of organizational principles for Cedar Lake Park. The Park is open for all to enjoy and makes it possible to commune with nature in the City.
