Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is transformational housing for women and families on their journey of recovery.

Current strategic initiatives include:

- Increasing the number of women and families served by at least 25% per year
- Expanding and deepening supportive services to meet emerging needs
- Creating a forward looking master plan for facilities and technologies
- Cultivating an ever-increasing circle of champions
- Building strong internal capacity and systems

Emma Norton Services' assets include a nearly 100-year legacy of providing affordable housing in Ramsey County; a dedicated staff and board of directors; a strong base of volunteers and donors with long-standing relationships with the agency; two easily accessible sites in Ramsey County; and dedication to meeting the needs of women and families in our community.

In 2015, ENS helped 141 women and 87 children by providing a supportive community, resources, and personal development opportunities while they worked to build a better life without having to worry about basic needs like a safe place to sleep. We helped 29 women and 6 families move from our programs to safe, affordable housing in the community.
