Construction is nearly complete on our new location in the Elliot Park neighborhood of Minneapolis! We are excited to share that the building complex has been named Catholic Charities at Elliot Park, which will co-locate:
- The Frey Center will serve as the new Catholic Charities headquarters and provide workspace for over 250 staff, including Catholic Charities Executive Team.
- The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation Recuperative Care Center will provide short term respite opportunities for 30 people experiencing homelessness who need additional time to recover after being released from a hospital.
- Hennepin County Healthcare for the Homeless Clinic will offer health care to building residents and other people experiencing homelessness in the neighborhood.
- Endeavors, formerly known as Exodus Residence, will provide permanent homes for more than 170 homeless single adults, veterans, and people with complex medical conditions. Current residents worked with staff to choose the new name, which conveys the resilience and possibilities found through each individual’s journey.
Catholic Charities at Elliot Park is a purposeful reimagining for Catholic Charities. For the first time, our Executive, Finance, Human Resources, Development, Advocacy, and Communications staff — in addition to Aging and Disability Services staff —will be located together in one space alongside residents of one of our programs.
“Co-locating our headquarters with Endeavors will allow staff to experience our mission in action,” said Catholic Charities Chief Human Resources Officer Michael McRath. “We’re excited about the opportunities ahead.”
Catholic Charities’ shared services staff will begin transitioning onsite in mid-May, while Endeavors residents will move into their new homes in June.

In the midst of a statewide housing crisis, Catholic Charities purchases the new home to Exodus 2.0 building at 1007 E 14th St in the Elliot Park neighborhood of Minneapolis, providing urgently needed homes to 203 people who need housing stability, many of whom are older and medically frail, including many veterans.
After delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, construction on Exodus 2.0 begins to renovate the existing building to serve future residents and host Catholic Charities administrative staff.
Renovations at Catholic Charities at Elliot Park are nearly complete and we expect to welcome residents and staff starting in May!
