For over 30 years Women’s Center (MWC) has educated the community about life-affirming options for pregnancy related challenges, provided educational classes for expectant parents, and offered practical items for babies. Since 2012, we have provided temporary shelter for pregnant women at our Amazing Grace Home (AGH) in Fridley. All services are free of charge.
Our HOPE program provides opportunities for expectant parents to earn points by watching educational videos, working a job, and/or participating in other activities that improve their future. Parenting and Life Skills educational presentations are offered every Wednesday at 1:00 pm in our Restore Center classroom. Points earned by engaging with our HOPE program can be redeemed for baby supplies, an infant car seat, a pack n’ play, diapers, and other baby items from our resource room. Visit our website to learn about more ways to earn points for baby items.
Temporary shelter for pregnant women over age 18, who do not currently have other children in their care, is provided at our Amazing Grace Home in Fridley. Since opening in 2012 the Amazing Grace Home program has housed 43 pregnant women. To view a video of our home click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8eVrowJcl0

Healthy food. Proper clothing. Housing stability. This is the ongoing story of PRISM.
PRISM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1970 by folks who were concerned about local hungry and homeless families.
What started as a small, informal effort has since evolved into a strong, sustainable organization that is considered a leading provider of basic needs services in the northwest Twin Cities suburbs.
Nearly 50 years later our mission remains the same: to provide social services and connections that empower people in our community to build healthy, stable lives.
Our core values of collaboration, innovation, dignity, and accountability can be seen in all areas of programming – from our Marketplace Food Shelf to our Housing Programs to our Shop for Change Thrift Shop to our Children’s Programs. It is these values that drive our efforts to serve people in a welcoming, strengths-based, individualized manner.

On Thursday, May 13, 2021, PRISM will host its 8th Annual Taste of the ‘Burbs fundraiser. While we had hoped to celebrate in person this year, for the safety of all involved we will gather virtually. Over 300 community members, business leaders, and philanthropic friends will take part in this memorable evening as we celebrate the unique role PRISM plays in helping vulnerable members of the community build healthy, stable lives. Funds raised at Taste of the ‘Burbs will support the basic needs services provided to more than 7,500 children, adults, and seniors who come to PRISM seeking healthy food, proper clothing, and housing stability. For 50 years, PRISM has not just served the community, we have relied on the community to serve those in need. To be included in this year’s Taste of the ‘Burbs event please contact Kevin Lytle, firstname.lastname@example.org, 763-432-4210.
