Ladder of Hope

Guild’s Ladder of Hope events are hour-long impactful fundraisers that support Guild’s mission-driven and lifesaving services. Held for over 15 years, the Ladder of Hope events have become a staple to our supporters. These events are a chance to hear unforgettable stories of hope and recovery from staff, clients, and community members. We hope to inspire attendees to become donors, volunteers, and/or community partners. We believe that together, we can change lives.

What does Ladder of Hope support?

Guild empowers change by engaging individuals and communities, embracing their needs, and elevating their voices. We know that enduring, lasting change occurs one small step at a time when people see and understand all their options and create their own paths. At Guild we walk alongside people on this journey, working towards a future in which everyone has access to health, wellness, and community.

We served nearly 2,200 individuals in the Twin Cities metro area in 2021. From mental health crisis services to street outreach, our team is ready to help in some of the toughest situations. Not only are our services backed by research, but they are also mobile, meaning they are provided in the community when and where needed.

Everyone is worthy of the opportunity to create a life with joy, community, safety, and shelter. Stigma presents extraordinary challenges for people living with mental illness. Recognizing the inherent worth in all human beings, Guild places equity at the center of our work. We dispel discriminatory beliefs held by landlords, employers, and others – including practitioners – that don’t acknowledge mental illness as a disability that must and can be accommodated with the right support. Guild’s work is about restoring dignity and providing solid ground for everybody. We are not going to stop working until that happens.

Support from the Ladder of Hope events propels our work forward and we can’t do it without you.
