Providing hospitality, support, prayer, and a listening ear
Although our in-person SVdP Outreach Ministry has been suspended due to an abundance of caution and to protect people from possible exposure to the Coronavirus, we do have the capability to assist with ID fees, birth certificate fees, and rent for those who are eligible.
What type of assistance do we currently provide?
ID - If you are a Minneapolis resident, we can assist with the fees to pay for a state ID or a driver’s license
Birth certificate - If you are a Minneapolis resident, we can assist with the fees to pay for a birth certificate from any state
Call The Basilica general office number at 612.333.1381 and tell the receptionist you need help paying for an ID/birth certificate. She will place your call into a voice mail box - listen to the instructions, leave your name and contact number, and a volunteer will call you back to inform you of the next steps.
Rent - The Basilica provides an emergency rental assistance program with Align Minneapolis. To apply you must:
- Live in the city limits of Minneapolis
- Have been denied for assistance from Hennepin County
- Not need the help for 1st month rent and/or deposit
- Not be in a court-ordered eviction process or court-ordered payment plan
If you meet the above criteria, call Nate Merrill, Align Minneapolis Rent Coordinator, at 612.703.9978 for a phone interview.
