Incarcerated Men Ask For Help

The Men's Center office often receives letters from men who are incarcerated asking for men with whom they can communicate with for support. They know about the Men's Center from our outreach to prisons. If you are interested in writing to Men who are in prison or want more information, please call Randy at 612-822-5892.

Thanks!

Give to the Gerald Obremski
Anger Management Scholarship Fund

Gerald was a long time facilitator of the anger management program and a treasurer of the twin cities men's center. For over 12 years Gerald conducted classes and generously donated not only his time but also office space in Hopkins. Gerald was always reaching out to other men, giving them support to help men become more than their childhood patterns. Last September, Gerald passed away.

A scholarship fund to partially cover the cost of the class( now $250) has been set up to honor Gerry's legacy and to continue the work of helping men. If you are grateful for the anger management class, please send a contribution so others can take this class. Please send in the coupon below with your contribution.

Annual Meeting Report

On January 7, 2017 The Twin Cities Men's Center held its annual meeting to review our successes from 2016 and goals for 2017. A full room of active members gathered on that cold morning and learned that our financial status is sound; that we had ten series of successful Anger Management classes; that we served thousands of men at our many weekly Support Groups and Family Law Clinics; that we reached out to men in prisons across the state, and at various events like Pride; and that we hired a new Office Manager, Tom Maher, to run our day-to-day operations.

We also discussed 2017 goals such as redesigning our Website; improving our Outreach to younger men and men of color; continuing our successful Anger Management classes and Support Groups; restarting Wednesday Presentations; increasing membership; completing our Long-Range Strategic Planning process; and electing a new Board of Directors to lead us.

The members of the new Board are: Chair - Joe Szurszewski, Vice Chair - Chris Durant, Secretary - Tom Weaver, Treasurer - Rick Charlson, Andy Mickel, Chris Fehl, Norm Petrik, and Harry Greenberg.

Our Board alternates are: Jim Heaney, Malik Holt, Dan Gorbunow, Jamie Wellik, and Lydell Johnson.


PLEASE let us know when you have a Change of Address.

It costs us over $50 each mailing for returned and re-mailed Men Talks. Thanks!

— Randy Genrich, Office Manager
