Connections Shelter

Connections Ministry began as a coalition of downtown churches in Mankato, Minnesota, coming together to best serve those in the community seeking assistance and resources. Out of the intentional relationships built through our Community Connectors, it was determined that one of the best ways we could make a difference was to open a rotating shelter. Partnering with 8 local congregations, Connections launched the shelter October 31, 2017. Over the course of the season we hosted over 125 individuals and families. Connections Shelter has now grown to a 25 bed single site shelter.
