Hope Street Emergency Shelter

Hope Street Shelter, located in south Minneapolis, provides short-term emergency shelter and intensive case management services for homeless youth and young adults ages 16 - 20 escaping abusive living situations or street life. An estimated 1,800 homeless youth in Minnesota are on their own each night.

Hope Street offers a secure, supportive environment to help homeless teens determine their own options. The shelter meets basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing and medical care. Staff assess the feasibility of reconciliation with family or placement with friends. If neither is an option, staff work to move the person to more permanent living arrangements.
