Rochester Organization that Helps The Homeless Now Has a Home!
The organization that helps those experiencing homelessness in the Rochester, Minnesota community finally has a home of its own!
A Rochester, Minnesota Organization that Helps The Homeless Now Has a Home of Its Own!
The Landing MN opens its doors every day to help those in Rochester, Minnesota that don't have a home of their own. The list of services provided to those in our community who need it most is truly phenomenal and hundreds of people are helped each year. Unfortunately, The Landing MN hasn't had a home themselves and have been working these past 3 1/2 years out of a truck, the Mayo Civic Center, the Silver Lake Fire Station, and right now is collaborating with The Salvation Army.
That all changed last Thursday. The Landing MN now has a home!
This morning at 10am, The Landing MN took ownership of their future home at 426 3rd Ave. SE. We take this step forward with tears of joy in our eyes, hearts full of gratitude, and eager to bring our new space to life. 🙏🏼
This journey has been so unexpected. Had you told us three and a half years ago that we would be holding the keys to our own building and serving hundreds of individuals experiencing homelessness, we never would have believed it.
But, God called us to take a leap of faith and serve those he loves. He has been unfailing in his provision since the beginning, so we aren’t surprised by his goodness anymore, but we are continually in awe of it. Of course, he would make this possible, too!
So, here we are, still walking in faith, with hundreds of individuals trusting us to be their soft place to land, and an amazing community standing behind us. ❤️
As we move forward, we are starting from the foundation. We are establishing the building blocks, both physically and metaphorically, that are crucial to the ongoing success of The Landing MN and its programming.
Next Tuesday, July 5th, we look forward to sharing how you can be a part of this exciting next chapter. Stay tuned! ✨ - The Landing MN Facebook page
