Who We Serve

Any woman, any mother, any family

Guiding Star Wakota supports women and their families. And our presence in the heart of West St. Paul allows us to contribute to the overall health of our community as well.

Women — We serve women in different seasons and circumstances of life. Our Client Advocates and Coaches support women who have unplanned pregnancies, are raising young children, are in need of material support, or are in need of emotional support or life coaching. Our Women’s Health Team serves women who need gynecological healthcare.

Families — We serve women, men, and children with a number of services meant to help every home be a safe, affirming, and nurturing environment.  

Our Community — We are located at the corner of Robert St. and Butler in West St. Paul, which puts in a strategic place to strengthen our diverse community as we provide for the material, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of its residents.
