Families are in need, change their entire day for $50!
Due to the catchment of the level 1 trauma center at Hennepin Healthcare and our proximity to Abbott Northwestern Hospital’s Heart Institute – we meet and serve families from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. These families sometimes arrive with the clothes on their back. $1000 covers the cost for 2 adults to stay in a one bedroom apartment for 3 weeks OR could cover the cost for 2 families to stay 10 nights each.
The mission of Firefighters For Healing is to help first responders pivot after a devastating injury or diagnosis. Qualifying families have access to emergency housing and gift cards for meals, clothing, gas and hotels in addition to a community of first responder families and loyal volunteers who want to help in any way they can. We care, we listen, we encourage their next steps as their family navigates the first hours, days and months.
Our one bedroom apartments are fully furnished and provide a full kitchen, in suite laundry, a living room, a TV and iPad, public access wifi, 24 hour security, concierge services and free underground parking.
