We have apartments for homeless families with two or more children that are minors.  If you in need shelter, bring your entire family to Sharing & Caring Hands (525 N. 7th St.) Mondays-Thursdays at 10am or 1:30pm.

Please note that requests for shelter are considered on an individual basis and are not automatically granted.


Hot meals are served at our Day Services Center Mondays-Thursdays at 10:00am, 12pm, and 3:30pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30am and 11am.  All is welcome to join us for these meals.


Bags of food are given to families with children:  Mondays- Thursdays 10-11:30am or 1:30-3:00pm.


Dental services are available on a first-come first-serve basis whenever a dentist is available.  We provide extractions and fillings only.  Please call our main number 612-338-4640 to check for dates and times to come.  Dental clinic is located downstairs at our Day Services center.  All services are free of charge and services are provided for those who have little to no dental coverage.


Health Care for the Homeless has a clinic at the Day Services Center which is open on Thursdays.  Call 612-338-9030 for more information.  There is a separate medical clinic at Mary’s Place for Mary’s Place residents only.


Beds can be ordered for those who have recently moved into an apartment/home (within the last 30 days).  Beds are placed on a first-come, first served basis in person on Monday mornings starting at 10am and ends when we have an order of 50 beds.  We deliver to Minneapolis and some connecting suburbs.  We do not deliver to some areas of St. Paul and other metro locations.  We are still able to order beds for clients not living within our delivery areas as long as clients can pick-up their beds and come during our bed order time.  Beds are full or twin-size and are new or gently used.  We will order 1 bed per individual/up to 2 beds for families of two or more people in their households.  You must bring your lease and some form of identification.
