AT THE LIVING ROOM
Health Commons at the Living Room is a collaborative partnership between University of Minnesota-Medical Center, Fairview, Redeemer Center for Life, and Cora McCorvey Health & Wellness Center. 
We offer a drop-in health and wellness center located in the Harrison neighborhood. Our services are free of charge and open to everyone!

Our mission is to provide services based on respect, relationship building, hospitality, and collaboration. In doing so, we hope to connect health and hope for all participants to live healthier lives. The center is open two days a week, three to four hours a day, providing: nurse health consultations, health education, nutrition and physical activity classes such as Zumba and yoga, massage, healing circles, and other resources and referrals.

COMMUNITY GARDEN

Redeemer Garden opens opportunities for change, growth, and development. Grounded in our vision to be “A Beacon of Hope,” the Community Garden is an inclusive, hospitable space for all people interested in holistic living. We aim to increase access to fresh foods, improve food security, encourage physical activity, and improve diety habits through hands-on education. The Garden provides our neighbors plots to garden, use of our community Bread Oven, space for hosting gatherings, and pathways for quiet walks through the garden. Growing Fresh! To get involved with our community garden, contact Beatrice Kanake.

HEALTH EQUITY &

ENGAGEMENT

COHORT

 The Health Equity Engagement Cohort (HEEC) consists of 12 community-based organizations that most recently participated in Phase I and II of the Station Area Planning process conducted by Hennepin County.

HEEC engaged nearly 1,000 people and gathered input from nearly 500, over 80 percent of whom were people of color.

HEEC Members meet on a monthly basis to coordinate individualized engagement efforts with partner organizations and Hennepin County staff.
