Description

The LSS Metro Homeless Youth Programs offer a continuum of holistic services to runaway, homeless, and street-dependent youth ages 16-21 and their children in the Twin Cities Metro Area. These services are committed to helping youth build on assets and strengths, and connecting them with caring, supportive adults. We do street outreach, have a thirty day emergency shelter for homeless youth, two on-site transitional living programs and an off-site transitional living program for homeless youth and their children. We provide case management, life skills education and parenting skills education in our programs. Our programs are non-religious in programming and serve a diverse range of youth. We have 3 program locations, two located near the midway area of St. Paul and one off of 35E and Maryland Ave. in St. Paul.
