Our Saviour’s Housing

Program Mission Statement

We are a community of hope for those who need a home. Our mission is eliminating homelessness by providing shelter, support, and a chance to start over.

Our Saviour’s Emergency Shelter serves homeless adults (age 18+) who are in immediate need of a safe place to sleep at night. We provide a bed, a hot dinner, and supportive resources to 34 men and 6 women every night of the year. The shelter is open to residents daily from 5:30pm – 8:30am. For many, shelter is the first step in moving from homelessness to home.

Our Saviour’s Transitional Housing Program is an up to two-year program for women, prioritizing those who have experienced domestic violence. We provide a home for 16 women in two houses. In a supportive and stable environment, residents are able to focus on healing and pursue goals around health, education, and employment. They also find the time and space they need to plan their next step towards permanent housing.

Our Saviour’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program serves long-term homeless men and women who live with a mental illness, physical disability, and/or substance use disorder. For as long as needed, we support more than 100 residents in affordable rental housing around Hennepin County. After years (even decades) of homelessness, residents have truly found their way home. With ongoing support, they also work to improve their overall health and wellness.

Who We Serve

Each year, 650 men and women experiencing homelessness come through our doors.

What We Provide

At the most basic: Shelter. Community. Hope.

We provide dignified shelter and supportive resources, as well as transitional and permanent supportive housing.

But what happens here is about more than just a roof overhead. One of the most difficult parts about being homeless is being cut off from community – being seen not as a person but as “the homeless.”

We provide a space for every resident to feel welcomed, safe, and encouraged. We address the needs of the whole person because each piece of a person’s life influences the others. In this atmosphere, residents thrive. They find community and a chance to contribute. They learn to hope again.

Why It Matters

Spend any amount of time at a shelter, and the first thing you’ll learn is that each person’s story is unique. The paths in and out of homelessness are diverse. Many will surprise you. But a lack of affordable housing and support during difficult times is one common thread. We’ve all needed a helping hand before, but not everyone has one.

That’s why Our Saviour’s Housing exists. Because we believe that no one should have to navigate crisis alone. And the consequence of one mistake or uncontrollable circumstances should not be losing your home.
