House of Charity's new CEO, Deborah Moses, is Setting the Bar High 

Article by Claudia Kittock

For more than 60 years, House of Charity has been serving those in need in Minneapolis. Located at 510 S 8th Street, their mission is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness, and empower individuals to achieve independence. The House of Charity’s treatment program served 211 people in 2015, with a return on investment to society of $6,542,700. This organization does amazing work, and as is their tagline, they are "the heart of the city."

Deborah F. Moses, CEO/Executive Director of House of CharityIn December of 2018, the House of Charity Board of Directors named experienced nonprofit leader Deborah F. Moses, DPA, MPH, as the new Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of the agency. Deb is a lifelong resident of Minneapolis and has worked in many local nonprofits. She has a Ph.D. in public administration and says that coming to House of Charity felt like "coming home."

Deb is particularly invested in health care and improving access at a reasonable cost. The fastest growing demographic in people experiencing homelessness is in the over 55 age group. Many of them have struggled with health issues, and the cost of care can wreck economic and social havoc.

Deb hopes to integrate House of Charity into the community in an even more meaningful way, and is looking for community members to help. House of Charity does kind, respectful, compassionate work 365 days a year, and they can do even more with additional help. How can you help? There are several ways:
