Emergency (Cold Weather) Shelter Program

When all community family shelter space is full, the Emergency (Cold Weather) Shelter Program is available for homeless families residing in a place not meant for human habitation who are on or need to be added to the waiting list to get into Ramsey County Family Emergency Shelter.  A family must have an unsheltered status within the last seven (7) days and the unsheltered homeless status must be verified by a third-party professional (ie: case manager, school counselor, outreach worker, police officer, etc.).  Any families that are residing in a plce not meant for human habitation may contact the Ramsey County Homeless Services Office directly at 651-266-7818.  This program operates with the St. Paul School Calendar dates of September through early June.
