Annual Report


In March 2014, Vinland Center became an NAADAC Approved Education Provider. This status identifies our chemical health webinars as meeting nationally approved standards of education developed for the alcoholism and drug abuse counseling field.

During Spring 2014, Vinland launched an online mindfulness meditation video series as a resource for clients to continue their meditation practice after leaving Vinland. This project was made possible by a grant from The Trust for the Meditation Process.

For the third year in a row, Vinland Center was named to Star Tribune’s Top 100 Workplaces, ranking 11 on the small business list.

Total money raised for the 2014 Winter Walkabout was more than $50,000.

186 quilts were donated to Vinland from a variety of local individuals, groups, and organizations.


Thank you to everyone who made a donation during fiscal year 2014! Your support and generosity makes our work possible.
