Apple Pie Making

apple pie

United Women in Faith in Northfield UMC are doers. In June women, men, and youth cleaned out our closets, garages, and storage units for the mission rummage sale. In September women are rolling up their sleeves, putting on aprons (or not), and getting their hands into bushels of apples and food stuffs making delicious pies for sale. Emma Norton Services will receive most of the monetary fruits of our labor.

Who are we supporting with our efforts? “Emma Norton Services works with women to develop stability plans that reflect the individual’s needs and goals. The team helps them seek education; get care for mental illness and chemical dependency; maintain stable housing; and expunge criminal charges or unlawful detainers. Emma Norton Residence utilizes harm-reduction policies, providing the same level of care to all without judgment, regardless of where they are on their journey.”

“Emma’s Place is a permanent supportive housing development, specifically serving parents with three or more children who were formerly homeless, and who have at least one family member in recovery from mental illness and/or chemical dependency, or who has a physical disability.”

The Scattered-Site Housing Program at Emma Norton is designed to give clients independence while they continue to receive support. Clients live in apartments, which are privately owned by landlords in Ramsey County, while being educated on tenant expectations, and meeting regularly with Case Managers who support their journeys toward self-sufficiency.” Go to to find faces of those receiving God’s love.
