We are proud to support Guild as our 2021 charitable partner.
Guild is a Minnesota not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that empowers those living with mental illness and/or experiencing long-term homelessness by helping them find the tools they need to lead stable, fulfilling lives in communities of their choosing.
Guild serves individuals 16 years and older who live with serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and bipolar disorder. Many of their clients also face barriers to reaching their optimal health, including medical conditions, chronic homelessness, isolation, unemployment, poverty, and substance use disorder. Half of their clients have a co-occurring disorder, which means they cope with a medical condition or substance use disorder in addition to mental illness.
On any given day, Guild serves nearly 900 individuals in the Twin Cities metro area. From mental health crisis services to street outreach, the Guild team is ready to help in some of the toughest situations. Not only are their services backed by research, they’re also mobile, meaning they’re provided in the community when and where needed.
Guilds’ services aim to prevent homelessness, unemployment, the use of high-cost emergency room and hospitalization services, and involvement in the criminal justice system. Those outcomes are significant social issues that emerge when individuals with mental illness go without the treatment and services they need to heal and stabilize.
