is a real need in North Minneapolis. We stand with Families Moving Forward

women with immediate safety and the opportunity to explore
alternatives to living with a violent partner. Emergency housing,
advocacy and support services are available at the shelter for up
to 30 women and their children. Women's and children's advocates
provide information and resources, supporting the decisions each
woman makes and providing specific programming for children.
Advocacy and support services are available to women living in the
community through the Home Free Community Program.
Our quilting group makes quilts for women and families who come
through the shelter.
