In 2015, responding to overwhelming community need, Catholic Charities started construction on an innovative two building, two phase vision for the Dorothy Day Center, with an estimated project cost of $100 million. Higher Ground Saint Paul opened in January 2017 and it is already transforming lives. Our focus is now on completing Phase II of this integrated project which includes critical services such as job training, a community clinic, and a Veterans Resource Hub. Learn more.
Catholic Charities is nearing completion of the largest private capital campaign in its history.
It will take $40 million in private sector support, as well as significant public sector support, to make this transformational vision possible. Regional leaders are working hard to ensure its success! The campaign is chaired by Doug Baker, Jr., chairman and CEO of Ecolab, Mary Brainerd, CEO and president of HealthPartners and Andy Cecere, President and COO of U.S. Bank. Learn more.
