LAKE STREET ’22 AND 2020 YE Financial Goal Update

Lake Street ‘22, Source’s two year response to rebuild and restore South Mpls after 2020.

For 25 years, Source MN has served East Lake Street, just a few blocks away from our the Fallout (our community center). Lake Street is the heart of the impoverished immigrant neighborhoods devastated by the 2020 Minneapolis unrest. That’s why we distributed 200 tons of groceries and thousands of homeless meals from the Lake Street Kmart and the Fallout during our spring and summer response to the poverty and hunger crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Minneapolis unrest.

At the end of 2020, crime and poverty remain at record levels with little relief in sight. Darkness and victimization has increased and will continue if the city continues its natural downward spiral.

2021-2022 are critical to the rebuilding and restoring of the city. The next two years will be significant for decades to come. Source has been a light in the darkness since 1995 in South Minneapolis, working with homeless youth, trafficking victims, addicts and impoverished families.

Our physical location, historical impact, and partners allowed us to mobilize quickly to the 2020 crisis. Now the need is to rebuild and restore in 2021 and 2022. As more families experienced crisis in 2020, we increased our food distribution more than 15-fold in 2020, serving hundreds in need.

Lake Street ‘22 initiatives allow Source to continue and build upon our 2020 responses with strategic initiatives that include: Food Distribution, Homeless Meals, Anti-Trafficking, Teen Leadership and Art Programs, Small Business Assistance, and Latino Family Outreach.

Dozens of congregations and 100’s of partners allowed us to respond in 2020 to make a significant impact for the poor. Now we are calling on our network to join us to set foundations in 2021 & 2022 to make an impact for decades to come.

Please consider a Year End Gift and a future pledge. We cannot go forward without God’s direction, prayer and our partners.
