Resilience House (ages 10 – 17)
When families or young people need a break from tensions at home, The Bridge helps prevent youth homelessness by providing safe, short-term shelter at no cost.
Our Minneapolis crisis shelter provides semi-private rooms for 14 youth. Youth share a community living room and kitchen. Healthy meals are prepared by staff and youth. Transportation to school is arranged at no charge.
Check shelter bed availability at ysnmn.org.
Please text 612-400-SAFE or call (612) 377-8800 if you are a youth or parent and need help!
