Save to Favorites

Emma Norton Services

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 5 people are interested

This is a one-time opportunity that is available for the following dates with flexible afternoon start times and is expected to last 2-3 hours: 7/1, 7/2, 7/8, 7/9, 7/15, 7/16, 7/22, 7/23, 7/29, 7/30, 8/5, 8/6, 8/12, and 8/13.

Emma Norton Residence is in need of volunteers to help clean out and reorganize our resident storage room. As residents move out of Emma Norton Residence, we hold their items for 30 days after their exit so they may move their belongings to their new home. In order to offer this opportunity to all outgoing residents, we must clean out the resident storage room of items past their holding date. Volunteers will remove items from storage with direction from program staff and haul the items out to a provided dumpster in our back parking lot.

The suggested number of volunteers for this opportunity is 5 volunteers - 2-3 volunteers sorting through the storage room and 1-2 volunteers hauling items to the dumpster. You may bring more volunteers, however please limit your group to no more than 8 volunteers.

This volunteer opportunity can be physically demanding; volunteers should be comfortable lifting 35-40 pounds intermittently. Volunteers will be given a health screening upon arrival. Please stay home if you’ve experienced any fever or cold-like symptoms in the 24 hours leading up to your scheduled opportunity. Volunteers must wear a mask at all times while inside the building.

Questions or if interested, please email Victoria Virasy at vvirasy@emmanorton.org with your preferred date and start time.

Mission Statement

The mission of Emma Norton Services is transformational housing for women and families on their journey of recovery.


Emma Norton Services partners with women, children and families who are homeless and experiencing the challenges of mental and/or chemical disabilities. Without having to worry about the basic need of a safe, secure place to live, women and children can utilize and focus on supportive programs, life skills, services and opportunities available to accomplish their goals. We operate two site-based facilities in the Twin Cities, Emma Norton Residence and Emma's Place, as well as a supportive housing program in the community through our Scattered Site program.

Emma Norton Residence is a housing program in downtown St. Paul serving 50 adult women at any given time. Emma's Place in Maplewood offers permanent, supportive and affordable housing for 13 families with three or more children. After-school and children's programming includes educational, recreational, and motivational activities. Our new Scattered Site program partners with small landlords to support women and families secure housing and thrive in the community.
