Waite house

A long-standing pillar of the vibrant Phillips Community in South Minneapolis, our Waite House neighborhood center nurtures the health, prosperity, and social capital of over 4,500 community members each year.

The Phillips neighborhood, home of the Waite House since 1958, is the birthplace of both Prince and the American Indian Movement and home to the largest urban Native American population in the U.S. Over 40 percent of the community is foreign born, a mix of immigrants from Latin America, East Africa and Nepal as well as African-Americans and Euro-Americans.
