welcome to creekside community

This intentional living housing community will be a place of healing and comfort. It will feature a gathering center, gardens, permaculture areas, a park, playground, and a dog run. 

The cottages, all with inviting porches, will vary in size to meet the needs of the residents, ranging from studios in multiplex buildings to two-bedroom or three-bedrooms.

Creekside Center will be the hub of activity. A kitchen and large gathering area, a classroom, therapy and property management offices, an exercise room, and an art and crafts area all will create a welcoming environment for the neighbors to meet, socialize, and learn new skills.

The property is located next to Whiskey Creek in Brainerd, a town in central Minnesota, and close to the Mississippi River.  It is at the edge of town, surrounded by wildlife yet within walking distance to stores and services.   

Where are we at in the process?

  • Property is purchased and being surveyed.
  • Home plans are completed, and architectural and structural plans are expected to be done in June 2022.  We hope to be able to pull building permits in July.
  • Creekside Center design plans are near completion.
  • Our goal is to start building a four-plex in the fall of 2022.
  • Our application forms and resident handbook are complete.
  • Classes and courses are being developed.

We are preparing our Home Sponsorship Campaign to raise the funds necessary to reach our goal of lifting people out of homelessness and into a safe, affordable home.  Every donation will be an important step toward making this community of caring a reality. 

Do you want to be part of the solution?  Please consider donating today.

Thank you!
