Tasks Unlimited provides supported employment, housing and recovery services for people with mental illness so that they achieve a full life with the rights and responsibilities of adults in our society.

Grounded in the Fairweather Lodge Model, Tasks Unlimited supports mental health recovery by encouraging group decision-making and community living. By living and working as a group, program participants hold each other accountable in their mental health recovery.

Consistent, supportive employment is a key component to the mental health recovery process at Tasks Unlimited. Through Tasks Unlimited Building Services, program participants perform janitorial services, mailroom management and building maintenance to businesses throughout the Twin Cities.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Supported Employment

At Tasks Unlimited, we believe that a stable, supportive work environment is critical to successful mental health recovery.

The supported employment program offers mental health services, paid on-the-job training and basic living skills development. Staff and peers understand mental illness and provide accommodations that allow program participants to complete their work with excellent quality. Trainees learn how to cope with their mental illness symptoms and find appropriate interventions before mental health deterioration.

Participants can take part in the supported employment program with or without supported housing. All participants must qualify for and complete one of Tasks Unlimited's paid training programs upon admission. Successful training graduates average nearly 11 years of steady employment with the organization.

Previous work experience is not required for admission.

Population(s) Served

The experienced janitorial service teams at Tasks Unlimited Building Services can help your business provide a healthy and inviting environment through quality commercial cleaning services at an affordable cost.

A certified ISSA Green Cleaning Professional* oversees all commercial cleaning at Tasks Unlimited Building Services. With the earth-friendly cleaning alternatives provided, buildings can gain points towards attaining U. S. Green Building Councils Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design** for their building. Cleaning crews use HEPA filtration vacuums to reduce airborne particles and safe, non-toxic bathroom and window cleaners that meet and exceed standards required for certification. Green cleaning results in a healthier work environment and fewer sick days from employees. We provide daylight cleaning options to save you money from reduced electricity and heating/cooling costs.

Population(s) Served

Tasks Unlimited provides medication management, therapy, Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS), case management, and housing stabilization services for adults with mental illness. We strive to strengthen our community by creating opportunities for individuals and families to live emotionally healthy and independent lives to achieve personal growth and mental wellness. Our vision is to provide affordable, accessible, culturally competent, and trauma-informed services through a collaborative approach to mental health care.

Population(s) Served

Tasks Unlimited lodges are stable, supportive homes in clean, desirable neighborhoods throughout the Twin Cities that are available for program participants.

Unlike group homes, Tasks Unlimited lodges do not have 24-hour supervision. Based on the Fairweather Lodge Model, lodges are affordable, inter-dependent living environments operated by the tenants with limited assistance from staff. Lodge members manage their own lives and provide support to each other in daily activities. They establish their own rules, pay rent, clean, shop for groceries, go to work and participate in community activities just as one would do in any roommate living situation.

All lodge members complete the Tasks Unlimited Training Center program or Transitions Lodge program before moving into a lodge. These programs use peer support to teach basic living skills, mental health maintenance, and employment readiness skills per the Fairweather Lodge Model principles.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
