Welcome to our Neighborhood!

Organized in 1915, East Side Neighborhood Services is a nonprofit human service agency that provides social and other services to individuals, families and the communities of primarily Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis. Our purpose is to assist people of all ages and backgrounds in realizing a higher quality of life.


The sun certainly shined down on us at Nordeast Big River Brew Fest — participants raised $1,350 to benefit our Metro Food Programs. Thank you to those who helped us triple the typical donation given at this event in past years!
