Supporting Organizations and Partners
Normandale Evangelical Lutheran Church
Normandale Evangelical Lutheran Church (NELC) founded the Center in 1998 with three key partners as an outreach mission focused on supporting healthy aging in body, mind and spirit. NELC provides the Center with annual financial support and office space.
Senior Care Communities (SCC) support both the Center's general operations as well as special project and organizational development work. SCC facilitated The Center’s role in recruiting and managing a volunteer workforce at the Colony (now, the Waters) senior living residence located in Eden Prairie (2003 to 2020). The Center recruited, trained, organized and provided direction to volunteers on-site to support efforts of activity staff, and to enhance community and overall quality of life for residents.
The Center works with many community and faith based organizations to achieve our mission. An example of organizations and key collaborative relationships include:
Bloomington Public Health
City of Edina
Allina Medical Clinics
Edina Resource Center
Hennepin County Senior Services
Medica Health Plans
M Health Fairview
