Our Mission:

Better Futures Minnesota works to fuel and guide our participants’ desire to rebuild their lives and create their own success stories. We are also intent on changing the costly systems and practices that produce poor results and perpetuate the chaos and cycles of dependency experienced by men who have faced incarceration.

Our Vision:

We can build better systems and supports and end the revolving door of Minnesota prisons. And we can work to build fair and equitable communities where everyone in Minnesota the opportunity to thrive.

ReUse Warehouse Store:

Through our deconstruction services and ReUse Warehouse, we were able to keep more than 700 tons of building materials out of Minnesota landfills in 2015. With your support, we can continue to reuse materials and keep waste out of the landfill! All proceeds from sales go to Better Futures Minnesota’s outreach and integrated-care services, helping men who want to change receive the support they need to walk a better path in life and become healthy, happy, productive members of our community. When you buy reused materials or use our deconstruction or other business services in Minneapolis and St. Paul, you help support the men we serve, the community, and Minnesota’s environment! 

Looking to save money on your home-improvement project? Our ReUse Warehouse in South Minneapolis carries salvaged building materials such as flooring, carpet, wood, cabinetry, appliances, lighting, tubs, and more—everything you need to complete your project at a fraction of retail cost. We are located near the “Minnehaha Mile,” a shopping district along Minnehaha Avenue dedicated to recycled, reused, and reclaimed products. 

Our ReUse E-Store Campaign: 

Better Futures Minnesota is lauching this donation campanign in order to keep the ReUse Warehose store a reliable business option for our men. Due to the closure of our store we are launching an e-commerce store and curb-side pick up and delivery.
