Emergency Shelter Program for Families with Minor Children

When all community family shelter space is full, the Emergency (Cold Weather) Shelter Program is available for homeless families with minor children residing in a place not meant for human habitation who are on or need to be added to the waiting list to get into Ramsey County Family Emergency Shelter.  A family must have an unsheltered status within the last seven (7) days and the unsheltered homeless status must be verified by a third-party professional (ie: case manager, school counselor, outreach worker, police officer, etc.).  Any families that are residing in a place not meant for human habitation may contact the Ramsey County Homeless Services Office directly at 651-266-7818.  This program currently operates year round.
