180 Degrees' Emergency Youth Shelter
Central Minnesota's only 24-hour emergency shelter for youth in crisis
Since 1989, youth across Central Minnesota have found safety and support at 180 Degrees Emergency Youth Shelter in St. Cloud.
When home is no longer safe, or when youth and families need time and space to work through conflict or mental health crisis, or when youth are homeless or couch hopping, 180 Degrees is here to help.
Open 24-hours, 7 days a week, 180 Degrees' supportive program serves youth ages 12-17 from across Central Minnesota who experience or at risk of homelessness, sexual exploitation, violence, and neglect. Case Managers empower youth to identify strengths, explore resources, and develop goals and plans to realize their potential.
Services are free and accessible to youth who walk-in for services as well as through referrals from schools, social workers, and youth agencies from Benton, Blue Earth, Big Stone, Hennepin, Kanebec, Mille Lacs, Polk, Mower, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Swift, Wadena, and Wright counties.
At the St. Cloud Youth Shelter, we’re flexible, adaptable, and work with the youth to meet them where they are at and build them up to become the best version of themselves. We pride ourselves on being honest, respectful, and accepting of everyone and their individuality.
