People Serving People helps homeless and at-risk children and their families manage crisis situations and build a strong foundation for their long-term success.

People Serving People is the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota. We envision a community in which all children have the stability and support they need to develop their full capacity to thrive.
