Loaves and Fishes Community was founded in 1989 by Angie Miller and the late Steve O'Neil. It is inspired by the Catholic Worker Movement as well as northern Minnesota traditions of community and labor organizing. Our work includes family-style hospitality to people experiencing homelessness; transitional housing for men with criminal backgrounds; a no-money community bicycle shop; homeless outreach; and grassroots organizing for safe and affordable housing.

Volunteers needed:

There are currently six members of our core community and three members in formation. We can accommodate up to three more live-in volunteers and would love to explore that possibility with you! All people are welcome, and we are particularly interested in hearing from people of color and people with experience in the mental health field (Duluth is facing a severe shortage of mental health providers, which is evident in our daily work).

We live between four nearby houses in a quiet residential neighborhood just east of downtown Duluth. We welcome people of all faiths and are LGBTI- and family-friendly. We strive to balance our workload so members can pursue part-time work or school in addition to their daily commitments to the community. Decisions are made collectively and we actively study nonviolent communication to improve the quality of our relationships with each other. Room and board is covered and long-term members tithe 10% of their income back to the community. There is no stipend and we do not provide health insurance, but Minnesota has generous public plans. We ask potential new members to join us for a 3-month trial period before making a commitment.

Duluth has a thriving arts culture and tends blue-collar Left in politics. We are close to nature and blocks away from Lake Superior. That said, it does get really cold in the winter (but green and gorgeous in the summer!).
