Resource Centers

360 Communities is committed to providing lasting stability to families that come to either of our two Resource Centers. At these centers, we provide guidance to promote healthy, self-directed, and supported individuals and families.

The Resource Centers serve as open, welcoming places for community members to gather, work with volunteers and staff and plan their individual paths to success. 360 Communities staff and volunteers offer support with emergency food, financial aid, and connections to other community resources.

Legal Kiosks

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the legal system online, creating a digital divide that has disproportionately impacted communities served by Minnesota Legal Aid. The Minnesota Legal Services Coalition began the Legal Kiosk Project to ensure all people can access the legal system, resources, and justice.

360 Communities is a proud host of Legal Kiosks at our Burnsville and Rosemount Resource Centers. If you or someone you know would like to use the Legal Kiosks, visit one of our resource centers Monday through Thursday.

360 Communities is partnering with Dakota County, Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS) and Legal Assistance of Dakota County to provide a housing clinic to support tenants who are appearing in court for eviction hearings. With the goal of reducing the number of evictions, the housing clinic offers people access to legal services, financial assistance, and community resources.

Dakota County Video Interview (VI)

In partnership with Dakota County, our Resource Centers are host sites for a virtual program for individuals/families applying for public assistance. Dakota County Video Interview (VI) workers are available by video conference on Wednesdays at the Burnsville and Rosemount Resource Centers. Dakota County VI workers can process applications for the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP), General Assistance (GA), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Emergency Assistance, and Healthcare programs (MNSURE or MA).
