TCMC and Minneapolis Mask Mandate

The Twin Cities Men's Center's Staff, Board of Directors and all of our volunteers wish you well and hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and an enjoyable New Year! We wish you nothing but peace, happiness and prosperity in 2022!

The City of Minneapolis recently announced a city-wide mask mandate due to the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus. While we want to make TCMC a safe and courageous space for you to Explore Your Truth and Find Your Voice, we also want it to be a space where you will be as safe from illness as we can make it. To that end, the Twin Cities Men's Center has agreed that TCMC will be abiding by the city-wide mask mandate and we request that all Members, Support Group participants, renters and anyone who walks through our door please observe the city-wide mandate, wear a mask and observe appropriate social distancing. (There MAY be a limited number of masks available at TCMC at no charge to you).

Here is the Minneapolis Mask Mandate as it appears on the city's website

  • We are working with facilitators to enable them to communicated directly with support group participants on this website.
  • The TCMC Gay lssues Support Group has been the catalyst for pioneering a more effective hybrid (zoom+in-person) group meetings with new tech. We will extend that for other groups as well.
  • Groups that rent space (12-step groups & MKP for example) have been allowed beginning week of July 19th. They should provide sufficient masks for their participants..
  • Anger Management classes will continue to be on Zoom-only until about February 2022.

John Hesch 'Men Helping Men With Anger' Day

Nov. 18th, 2021, by official proclamation from the City of Minneapolis, is now known as John Hesch 'Men Helping Men With Anger' Day.

John is stepping down as our Anger Management Coordinator after 25 years of service. The Board of Directors at the Twin Cities Men's Center looked for ways to truly honor John and show him our gratitude for all that he has done for the Men's Center and for all of the lives that his guidance, mentorship and support have impacted in such a powerful way. The Mayor of Minneapolis stepped up and declared Nov. 18, 2021 as a day to honor John.

John coordinated the TCMC Anger Management program for well over a decade, and he served as a facilitator for years before that. This work has helped keep the doors open at the Men's Center, which means he has supported thousands of men and women who have come to TCMC for Support Groups, Family Law Clinics, Educational Programming, and of course, our Anger Management Class. He helps men to see that, as he always says, "only YOU can change how you express your anger". Our Anger Management certificate has been accepted by courts all over Minnesota (we have been vetted and approved by Hennepin County as an Anger Management class provider). Our certificates have been recognized and accepted by courts in Alaska, Texas, Ohio, South Dakota, California and Florida. THANKS, JOHN!!!
