Welcome

ResourceWest, a responsive community-based organization, assists people and strengthens the west metro community through collaborative programs and connections to resources.

We help build a healthier and stronger local community by connecting individuals and families to resources.  We have been providing this support and assistance to our community since 1993.

In 2014, we improved upon this mission by strategically locating with Hennepin County’s Human Services and Public Health in the West Suburban Region Hub in Hopkins MN. With this new location we can have a greater impact in the lives of the people whom we serve.

Our services focus on: a) stabilizing households by addressing basic needs; and b) supporting households in making changes that will lead to sustainable self-sufficiency. We go beyond a ‘band aid’ approach. For example, we don’t just refer a client to affordable housing or a job training program. Instead we work with them in overcoming challenges that might result in them losing the safe stable housing or employment opportunity that can lead to greater self-sufficiency.
