Navigating services can be daunting. It is ResourceWest's job to ensure great partnerships locally and metro wide to bring greater clarity and efficiency to connecting the dots for community members. We could not do this work with the many supportive community partners.
Here are some of the organizations we work with:
Hopkins and Minnetonka School Districts
We provide support to families and staff by answering questions about housing, medical resources, counseling and recreation. School supplies and Winter Warm Wear are often provided to students directly through the schools — as school district staff is acutely aware of the needs in their schools.
Hennepin County Economic Assistance
We are co-located with Hennepin County Health and Human Services. This partnership enables us support the participants with better clarity and efficiency.
Intercongregation Communities Association
For food, employment and financial assistance for housing.
HousingLink’s website provides a list of affordable housing vacancies in Hennepin County, plus information and referral on housing issues and problems.
Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin
We send residents who need energy assistance to Community Action Partnership’s site and homeowners with mortgage difficulties to their Mortgage Foreclosure Program. They provide financial counseling with Lutheran Social Services and eligibility screening for the Food Support program.
Prepare + Prosper Minnesota
Prepare and Prosper Minnesota provides tax preparation services to our clients. In return we provide the space and help connect them with individuals and families that need their services.
Portico Health Net
Portico’s MnSure Navigator works in our office once a week, to meet with participants that are working on applying or renewing their insurance. They will also help trouble shoot insurance needs that often do not fit in mainline insurance offerings.
Reach and Restore
We refer to Reach and Restore for household and clothing needs. They are located in Hopkins and is a great resource if you are looking to donate gently used clothing and household items.
Gifts for Seniors
Gifts for Seniors provides donated gifts and life-affirming personal contact during the winter holidays to isolated seniors in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. With the critical support of volunteers, donors and community partners – people like you – we can stop the spiral into loneliness, isolation and early death.
