Edina Community Action Team

About Our ACT Community

The Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness and the Edina Senior Center partnered to establish the Edina ACTion Team in 2014, and they continue to co-lead the effort. A strong network of more than 20 social service agencies, faith communities, housing and health care providers, businesses, and local government participate.
