"I work for the African American mothers and their families who've experienced domestic violence. I work so they feel seen, heard, and safe. I work to build trusting relationships with people in crisis, so I can connect them to food, employment, and shelter – and ultimately guide them toward healthy, independent lives.”
-- Carla, 180 Degrees SAFE Program, Case Manager
I work for a better tomorrow. I work to recruit and mentor foster families so all children have a place to call home.”
-- Rick, 180 Degrees Southeast MN Foster Care, Sr. Manager
