Our Savior’s Community Services is woven into the mission in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, meeting the needs of those people who are facing homelessness, giving helping hands to the immigrants and refugees. The independent non-profit, which started as a community outreach effort to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, helps with English classes and preparation for citizenship, and provides an emergency shelter and transitional housing for those without a place to stay. In a new wrinkle, Our Savior’s mission will harness the social power of beer to promote the work of the organization and raise some funds.
