Emergency Shelter

When times hit hard, we're here to help.

Youth Emergency Shelter Information

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 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. Youth can also find resources on the Youth Services Network website.
