La Rive Party Room
110 Bank St. S.E.
Join a conversation with Dr. Thomas Adams, the CEO of Better Futures Minnesota, which is the service provider for Great River Landing (GRL), Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative's project that just broke ground in North Loop near the Twins Stadium. GRL will provide affordable housing, workforce development, health and wellness programs, and life coaching to men formerly incarcerated who want to transform their lives and contribute to the community and their families. Dr. Adams will talk about the need for this holistic approach, how the men are identified, and the nature of the work supervision and support the men receive. MCC member Sonia Cairns, who co-chairs the Great River Landing Launch Team, will introduce Dr. Adams.
