Freedom House

May & June 2021

Were you aware that homeless shelters in the Twin Cities are only available overnight? As of January 2021, Downtown St. Paul now offers an essential alternative to walking the streets in the day: FREEDOM HOUSE, an easy walk from the Dorothy Day’s shelter (Higher Ground) and many tent encampments.

During the months of May and June, we’re collecting in-kind and financial donations for Freedom House and its parent organization, Listening House, which has been providing day shelter and resources on St. Paul’s West Side for almost 37 years.

Ways to Donate:

  1. Drop off items at Unity Minneapolis, Outreach Drop Off Box at Back Door.
  2. Contact Unity Minneapolis via email or phone to request a Service Angel to pick up your donations.
  3. Send a check to Unity Minneapolis and write “Freedom House” in the memo line.
  4. Make a secure online donation via text or on the website
