Ministry Partners

Covenant Enabling Residences of Minnesota is a ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church, administered under the auspices of Covenant Ministries of Benevolence. From its earliest years, the church has cared for those in need. The Covenant's tradition of excellence and compassion embraces adults with developmental disabilities.

Originally an outreach of Covenant Women Ministries, the first Covenant residence for adults with developmental disabilities opened near Chicago in 1994. There are now six Covenant Enabling Residences in three states. One is an intermediate care residence; the others offer supportive and semi-independent living services. Covenant Women Ministries continues its work with us through fund development, volunteerism and spiritual support.

Covenant Enabling Residences is tightly woven into the fabric of many Covenant ministries. Church conferences, in Minnesota the Northwest Conference, partner with us to develop and operate residences. Their members provide leadership, contribute financially and work with us as volunteers. National Covenant Propertiesprovides loans for new construction. Covenant Trust Company helps those who want to support our ministry with legacy gifts. Where possible, Covenant Retirement Communities works with us to develop enabling residences that will benefit from the synergy of being located on the campus of a retirement community.
