We Help Youth in Crisis.

On any given night, 6,000 Minnesota youth experience homelessness.  This includes 2,500 minors and 3,500 youth ages 18-24. These are conservative estimates.*

And the problem continues to grow.

The Bridge for Youth is dedicated to providing the connection between the current realities of homelessness and a brighter, safer, more stable future.

The Bridge is a safe and welcoming place for youth in the Twin Cities who have no one to turn to, nowhere to go. With a dedicated staff and strong support from the community, we help hundreds of youth get off the street, into safe shelter, and on to a better life. Our welcoming, residential setting is unique among programs for runaway and homeless youth, providing services at no charge, 24/7/365.

The Bridge develops approaches that help youth and their families resolve their conflicts and move toward healthier relationships. Each year we serve more than a thousand young people and families with a continuum of services, including:

  • 24-hour hotline
  • Crisis shelter and counseling
  • Youth, parent, and family counseling
  • Transitional programs
  • Ongoing support services
  • Rental housing for formerly homeless youth 18-21
