Youth and Young Adults Experiencing Homelessness

Wilder Research estimates more than 2,500 youth sleep on Minnesota’s streets every night

As a Minnesota Public Radio listener and online reader we know that issues impacting our community are important to you. At Catholic Charities we are working to build a community that understands the causes and impacts of poverty and with your support, create sustainable solutions to help our neighbors most In need. Catholic Charities’ Hope Street, located in south Minneapolis, serves youth at-risk of homelessness or currently experiencing homelessness. Grounded in a journey oriented and nonjudgmental approach, we meet youth where they are at to build trusting and supportive relationships.

School Outreach

School Outreach Program supports youth identified by their school liaisons as homeless, or at risk of homelessness. Case managers connect these youth to vital resources to remove and overcome barriers and assist them in moving through their housing crisis so they can focus on academic success.

Emergency Shelter

Hope Street for Homeless Youth provides emergency shelter and case management for youth 16 to 20-years-old who are experiencing homelessness, escaping abusive living situations. The shelter provides for basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing and medical care.

Transitional Living Program

The Hope Street Transitional Living Program provides stable housing in a supportive environment meeting basic needs (food, clothing, transportation, medical attention) and intensive case management to learn the skills needed to move toward independence.

Permanent Supportive Housing

The Hope Street Permanent Supportive Housing Program provides housing for young adults who are homeless and disabled, offering case management services to maintain housing and work towards self-sufficiency.
