About WeCAN

WeCAN serves individuals and families in need in Western Hennepin County. We are a community nonprofit that empowers and equips individuals and families to reach stability and self-sufficiency.

 

WeCAN was founded in 1989 to address the lack of social service programs for low-income families in Western Hennepin County. From emergency assistance to food support to helping our clients with job skills, WeCAN is in existence to help, support and inspire.

Who We Are

 

WeCAN is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to empower and equip individuals and families to reach stability and self-sufficiency.

Our vision is that families and individuals will thrive in a vibrant community with full access to resources and support services.

 

The organization’s purpose is to address the human service needs by delivering emergency service, sharing information, developing cooperative efforts, and making referrals to other agencies as may be appropriate. WeCAN serves as a resource and catalyst for the provision of human services in the area by identifying unmet human service needs and developing solutions that address those needs, including information and referral services.
