David Kaplan's Experience
Major Gifts & Communications Manager
Nonprofit; 51-200 employees; Nonprofit Organization Management industry
August 2013 – Present (5 months) Minneapolis, MN
People Serving People (PSP) is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused shelter in Minnesota. The true face of homelessness is the face of a 5 year old child. On an average night, PSP provides housing for more than 400 guests, two-thirds of which are under the age of 18. PSP provides for the immediate needs of families in crisis and offers long-term stability. Investing in families today curbs long-term costs tomorrow.
PSP achieves its mission and goals by providing emergency housing and community services that assist families experiencing homelessness in becoming self-sufficient and reconnected with the community. In a safe, secure and sober environment, PSP provides services which cultivate independence and accountability.
What distinguishes PSP from other emergency shelters is the broad range of on-site programs and services designed to address common barriers that homeless families are faced with. To provide a new opportunity for families, it is necessary that we help them find ways to break through these barriers and stop patterns that lead to poverty and homelessness.
PSP’s facility in downtown Minneapolis was crafted so that 21 other agencies could be housed on-site. The current facility has 10 floors and a lower level full service dining hall; including seven floors for emergency housing, offering 99 hotel-size rooms and 10 two-bedroom apartments. There are four service floors containing a dining room, culinary arts training program, two libraries, several classrooms, collaborative agency offices, medical clinic, one infant and one preschool center, computer lab, and more.
