Shelter Families

Offering shelter and transitional assistance for families in crisis.

Congregations host families who are experiencing homelessness, extending hospitality and a warm, safe place to rest. Dedicated volunteers from more than 90 congregations throughout the Twin Cities metro area make hot meals, lead activities, and set up comfortable spaces to sleep as they host families overnight for a week at a time.

During the day, families work with our case managers based on their unique needs, finding support as they transition from temporary shelter to an established home. At our Program Centers, parents may search for a new home, do laundry, go to work or search for a new job, while their children play or go to school. Through the entire experience, we foster an environment of dignity and resilience.
