Tubman Women’s Shelter
Tubman is Minnesota’s largest provider of domestic violence shelter services, with 128 beds in various facilities in Hennepin, Ramsey and Washington counties.
We love these families and the staff that serve them. We are there weekly:
discussing the Word in Bible Study
We also enjoy throwing a themed party or two there from time to time!
Sandwich Making for the Homeless
We’ve made them on Sandwich Sundays by the thousands and in homes by the hundreds. Either way, they go directly to the streets of the Twin Cities with Mr. Allan Law. You make em’ and we’ll make sure they get where they need to go!
