Dakota Woodlands

Agency Description: Dakota Woodlands has been providing food and shelter for homeless women and children in Dakota County for over 35 years. The facility has the ability to shelter 22 families at a time and on average shelters 120 families per year. Families usually stay for about 3 months, but are welcome to stay as long as needed to move from homelessness to homes of their own. Dakota Woodlands creates an individualized plan for each family, helping them achieve long-term success by addressing and moving past the issues of homelessness. Location: 3430 Wescott Woodlands, Eagan, MN 55123.

Volunteer Description: Volunteers play a vital role in Dakota Woodlands' success! There are opportunities for individuals as well as small groups in the playroom, the kitchen, sorting and delivering donations, reception desk, teaching classes in computer skills, nutrition, arts and crafts, plus much more. Dakota Woodlands would love to match your skills and schedule to their needs.
