Who We Are
Community Emergency Service (CES) is a non-profit crisis relief and empowerment ministry that extends God's love to those in the inner city of South Minneapolis.
Inspired by the the philanthropy of Russel Lund, Sr (of Lund's Foods) and the vision of Pastor William Berg, CES was organized in 1971 as an outreach of Augustana Lutheran Church of Minneapolis. It began with the purpose of offering a one-stop, personal approach for crisis aid for the inner city's poorest residents.
CES staff and its 1,000 volunteers are on the frontlines of providing hope and compassion to our multi-generational, multi-cultural, low-income clientele.
