Brian Coyle Center brings people together. We promote social and economic equality for the residents of our community through programming that builds strength and the entrepreneurial spirit in youth, seniors, adults, and families and, through learning, creates connections that help our community thrive.
Brian Coyle Center is located in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, one of the most densely populated areas in the state, with approximately 1,800 apartment units on two city blocks.
The center is named after the late Brian J. Coyle, former vice president of the Minneapolis City Council, and dedicated activist for tenants’ rights and economic justice throughout his career.
In addition to the programs run by Pillsbury United Communities, the Center also houses other organizations, including the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, Emerge Community Development, and Pan African Legal Aid. Brian Coyle Center also offers six multi-purpose meeting rooms, an institutional-size kitchen, a food shelf, a coffee cart, and a gymnasium.
