About St. Anthony East

St. Anthony East Neighborhood Association (SAENA) is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to building relationships with community members and empowering them to invest and engage with their neighborhood.

The primary source of funding is through the City of Minneapolis’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program and Community Participation Program. As such, SAENA strives to represent the neighborhood’s needs through outreach such as mailings, door knocking, and holding public meetings. SAENA encourages resident involvement in every aspect of what we do.

St. Anthony East has a variety of stakeholders including Webster Elementary, small businesses, non-profits, the Islamic Community of Bosniaks in Minnesota mosque, and public housing. It is the home of two beautiful green spaces, St. Anthony Park and Community Commons Park. St. Anthony East has a community garden called Summer Street Garden. St. Anthony East is the second smallest, yet ever thriving neighborhood in Minneapolis with close to 1,100 households.

St. Anthony East is located in northeast Minneapolis. The neighborhood extends from Broadway Street NE on the northern border to Central Avenue NE on the east and southeast, Second Avenue NE on the south, and then Fifth and Washington streets NE on the west

  1. Hello Loretta,

    Please let us know if you are still interested in the Remodeling programs offered by St Anthony East Neighborhood Association (SAENA). I have added some information to the website with basics on the programs here: http://saenaminneapolis.com/housing-resources/

    As the new Neighborhood Administrator, I work on behalf of the Neighborhood Board of Directors to implement the activities of the St Anthony East Neighborhood. Our next meeting is June 22, 2015 and it would be great if you could attend (hopefully we can chat about loan programs!). Also, feel free to call or email me for further information at: [email protected] or 612-331-6514. Note: To be sure that we connect, I will send you an email as well.

    Also: My apologies for being over a year late in responding to your message. We had some issues with staff turnover that went unresolved for a while and many things did not get done as one might have hoped.

    Take Care,

    Robert Clarksen
    Neighborhood Administrator
