People Serving People – serving homeless children and their families and providing new opportunities for healthy, stable family life.

People Serving People is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota. Our vision is to permanently end a family’s homelessness with one visit to our shelter.

People Serving People achieves its mission and goals by providing emergency housing and community services, which assist families experiencing homelessness to become self-sufficient and reconnected with the community. In a safe, secure, and sober environment, we provide services which cultivate independence and accountability.

What distinguishes us from other emergency shelters is the broad range of on-site programs and services designed to address common barriers faced by families experiencing homelessness. We help families find ways to overcome these barriers to self-sufficiency through advocacy, employment, education, and parenting programs.

People Serving People is the largest and most comprehensive family homeless shelter in Minnesota. 60% of our guests are children averaging 6 years of age.
