Community Emergency Service
Description of Ministry
Community Emergency Service (CES) is a non-profit crisis relief and empowerment ministry that first and foremost glorifies Jesus Christ and extends His love to those in the inner city of South Minneapolis. Located in the Phillips (Ventura Village) Neighborhood, CES provides services to over 15,000 people annually. Its clients largely consist of low-income households, single parent families, the elderly, mentally/emotionally handicapped persons, and recent immigrant groups. Through prayer support, direct aid relief, advocacy, referral, and counsel, CES seeks to strengthen families and individuals during times of crisis in order to move them beyond the crisis to financial stability, emotional health, and spiritual strength and growth.
