The Fight to End Homelessness

St Olaf and DCEH

St. Olaf is a member of Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH) and we are pleased our parish programs and advocacy we have done together help keep families in their
housing.One program is the DCEH Emergency Rent Assistance (ERA) program. ERA recently wrote a check for our 300th household right before Memorial Day Weekend. Over 80% of the households we provide assistance to are still in stable housing 3-6 months later, and many continue engage with member congregations. To learn more about the program go to or contact Michael Griffin at 612-767-7632 or
