"For families experiencing housing instability, Normandale House creates affordable safe space and personal relationships for encouragement on the journey toward a more stable future"

Our Vision:

Normandale House has become clearer and more purposeful about how our families, staff, volunteers and our friends in the greater Phillips’ neighborhood work together to  decrease the number of families struggling to achieve housing stability.

  • Supporting families on a path to housing stability,
  • Donors and volunteers learn new skills, gain experience, and broaden our awareness of unstable housing struggles.
  • Expanding our donor and volunteer base, so we are ready to accommodate more families. 

Our Mission:

Normandale House – walks alongside families experiencing housing instability by providing a safe and affordable home, family support and encouragement on the journey towards a more stable future.

Our History:

25 years ago, Normandale House was created as an outreach program of Normandale Lutheran Church in Edina, Minnesota.  Representing a response to the gospel’s directive to share the love of Christ with all people.

It continues to operate as and independent organization under the aegis of the church and the values for which it stands.
