How We Can Help

North Shore Area Partners is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the independence of older adults 60+. Our trained volunteers and professional staff provide compassionate and confidential assistance that enables elders living in the heart of Minnesota's North Shore to remain in their own homes and connected to our community as long as possible.


We serve everyone regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender or disability.

We are committed to serving all residents regardless of their financial circumstances. What is important is that you receive the services you need and we trust that you value these services and will contribute as you are able, when you are able.
