Board Opportunities

Our Saviour’s Community Services (OSCS)


Our Saviour’s Community Services (OSCS) walks with people in community in the heart of Phillips, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in South Minneapolis. We provide dignified shelter and housing for single adults and education for adult English language learners through our two programs – Our Saviour’s Housing and the English Learning Center.

OSCS takes its name from Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, which founded our programs in the early 1980s. In 2004, we became a legally and financially independent nonprofit organization. OSCS is not a religious organization today. We honor and value the support and involvement of many faith communities. OSCS welcomes people from all backgrounds as board and staff members, and as volunteers, supporters, and program participants.

Annual Budget: $3,327,000 – Earned Income, Foundations, Government Grants or Contracts
