Anoka-Hennepin School District (Fall 2019)

Because of our success in Anoka County, we are preparing for growth into the largest school district in MN – with 38,000 students, 1,200 were identified as homeless.  We’re preparing to support their 50 social workers and find wonderful host families through their network of faith communities – would you join in?  We need financial sponsors (SF Advocates) and area churches to participate.

Check out the Safe Families Advocate Page for giving details (NOTE: ISD 11 for giving) or email Church Engagement Manager, Penny Isaac-Nelson for suggested churches. (
