The Family Place

Help us make sure families have a safe place. Today and everyday.

In providing day time shelter 364 days a year, we also connect parents and children to the support they need, from nighttime shelter to other social services.

Today, 18 years after I founded The Family Place, I see that the need is greater than ever for families. Record numbers are coming through our doors for support, and given the current Twin Cities housing shortage along with affordable housing, they are staying with us longer.

The Family Place has challenging goals to change the way shelter stays are spent, bringing humanity back in the way shelter systems operate, and to end repeated bouts of homelessness and generational homelessness via education and empowerment leading to permanent, self-sustainability 

Our resolve is strong as we pursue our mission to help families navigate the crises of poverty. Over the years, I have been motivated not just by the families we serve but by you, the wider community.

Please show your support by donating today. Thank you!
