Every year The Salvation Army provides over hundreds nights of shelter to youth in need.
There are roughly 800 homeless youth, age 18 to 21, in the state of Minnesota on any given night. Approximately 480 are in the Twin Cities Metro alone. The outreach of emergency housing is essential to stabilizing this young and under-served population.
The best part of living here is to know that I’m not alone, that there are other people like me. And it’s nice to know I have shelter – I don’t have to call 15 people to see if I can stay with them.
The Booth Brown House at 1471 Como Ave. W., St. Paul, is a safe place for youth to turn when they have nowhere else to go. Our Homeless Youth Overnight Shelter provides help for 18 to 21 year-olds, while our Foyer Housing program helps vulnerable or disadvantaged youth, ages 16 to 24, transition from dependence to independence.
Youth Emergency Shelter
The Booth Brown House opened an emergency youth shelter in the summer of 2012. Our emergency youth shelter can house 16 homeless youth, ages 18-21, on any given night. Youth in need of shelter should call the Ramsey County joint shelter line at 651-444-5757 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily to find out about bed availability.
Foyer Housing Program
The Foyer housing program offers stable and affordable housing to young people age 16-24, with the support and resources necessary to make the transition to independence. Each tenant signs a lease and rents a furnished efficiency apartment (view photos) located at the Booth Brown House.
Youth can also find resources on the Youth Services Network website.
