Cold days and warm nights at home, twinkling lights and sparkling snow falling on the city - the holiday season is upon us. 

This Giving Tuesday, consider making a gift to Phyllis Wheatley. Our work gives people in our North Minneapolis neighborhoods and beyond the tools and skills they need to heal from the past and begin to envision brighter futures, strong communities, and the stability they need to find real success. 


We work to create new pathways, close the door on old mistakes and break patterns that don't serve them, learn skills that allow them to prosper in school and in the workplace, and build families that support, encourage, and raise a generation of kids who have the vision of a world that is better than the one they know. 


This year, give a gift that leaves a lasting impression. Support Phyllis Wheatley's programs and you're supporting change - in North, in Minneapolis, and in the lives of individuals who have overcome much, and who are building futures and taking control of their lives with each step they take.

At Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, we work to create educational, recreational, and restorative learning opportunities for the people who live in our North Minneapolis neighborhoods and the greater Twin Cities area. 

Our services evolve quickly, always adapting and changing to keep pace with the ever-changing needs of our community.


Our goal — To provide families with access to critical early childhood education, information and resources that exist to help, career skills training, and educational opportunities that can stabilize lives.

Our commitment to our neighbors' empowerment and belief in their many talents are what drive us, and our mission, each day.
