Keep the lights on at Rye House!

Hey friends, 

The Rye House is in need of some serious financial support.

We are a group of six intentional community members who work to have a warm and welcoming home for people who are in need of housing.  We have a (newly) bi-weekly open meal for anybody who wants to eat good food and chat. We organize and collaborate with other organizers in the Twin Cities around police brutality and dismantling white supremacy in our communities and our religious institutions. 

If you have ever eaten a meal at our Thursday night meal, please consider giving any amount.

If you have ever attended one of our Roundtable discussions (more to come!), please consider giving any amount.

If you have ever told someone you know to check us out, please consider giving any amount.

If you have ever trusted us with your friends or loved ones looking for housing, please consider giving any amount.

If you've never heard of us before, check us out:

We get our money to fund these projects two ways: 
1) We have a group of generous donors who help us greatly with our building costs,
2) We fund ourselves out of our own personal finances

And we are in need of some extra support. Part of intentionally keeping space open for people to stay means that we have big housing costs. We also provide food for people who are staying with us. And because we've been doing this for six years, our funds are really low. We need your help! 

Thank you so much for all the ways you have shown us your love and support.

With love from,
Katie, Joe, Nikki, Jared, Molly & Zach
