Humans of Minneapolis (“HOM”) connects hearts & minds through storytelling to encourage empathy and build community.


There are three branches to our work:

Community engagement: We share diverse personal narratives that build bridges of understanding.

Collaboration: We develop partnerships that harness our mutual strengths.

Events: We do talks, teach workshops, and create social spaces that foster meaningful connections.


HOM is not a social services organization, but rather a facilitator of connections. Story subjects who have needs in terms of housing, addiction, mental health, and/or other immediate issues should seek social service organizations that specialize in those areas.
