Family Promise in Anoka County
We are thrilled to announce the purchase of two adjoining properties to open a Family Promise Campus this spring! The Family Promise Campus enables us to better serve families and children in Anoka County through a continuum of services for families experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. The Family Service Center (formerly called the Day Center) will be located at 363 Coon Rapids Boulevard in Coon Rapids and the residential property where shelter space will exist is at 340 95th Avenue NW. We will be more centrally located within the county and right on a public transit bus line, increasing accessibility for families without their own transportation.

Watch for more information regarding Zion’s volunteer involvement as we move full-speed ahead on the fundraising efforts to make sure we have what we need to bring the project to completion. We are looking for a few people to help us with sub committees looking to raise the first $130,000 toward the project. We’ve broken that goal down into different categories, including congregations, individuals, and service organizations. Each of these areas will have a short-term committee helping to raise the funds and shepherd the process to ensure we get the support needed to get the new Family Service Center up and running.
