dignity, not dependence.
Welcome to Urban Ventures. We are a nonprofit organization that's bringing a radically different approach to the fight against urban poverty in the Twin Cities.
Direct-service programs work holistically to support families from our south Minneapolis campus. Programs focus on jobs, education, food, & families.
Products & Social Enterprises
Our enterprises produce real products you can buy. They create living-wage jobs, provide skills training and reinvest 100% of net proceeds back into our programs.
Partnerships increase our impact by connecting individuals, corporations, churches, and other nonprofits ways to share expertise and make a difference.
