Northern Division: Serving every county in Minnesota and North Dakota
Housing at Harbor Light


Sometimes life doesn’t turn out how we planned. Other times we get slammed with an unexpected hiccup, such as job loss or medical debt. With one in six people living in poverty today, hardship can easily lead to homelessness.1 The Salvation Army has about 50 emergency, transitional and permanent housing options in Minnesota and North Dakota that can help. Thousands of people sleep safely every night because of these programs.

Emergency Housing

When life throws a curveball, you can still count on a warm bed to sleep in. If you’ve lost your housing and need immediate help, you can stay at one of our emergency housing facilities. In cities where we don’t have facilities, we will refer you to partner programs or provide financial assistance to cover nightly housing costs, when available.

Transitional Housing

When you need a place to stay during the “in-between,” our transitional housing program offers shelter until you find a permanent place to live. If you’ve been evicted, are dealing with an addiction, face a domestic break-up or have another type of housing crisis, contact your local Salvation Army to find out what transitional housing options are available in your area.

We offer temporary housing and support services for up to six months to low-income single men and women, and some areas are able to accommodate young adults and families. Our Harbor Light Center is Minnesota’s largest homeless outreach facility.

Permanent Supportive Housing

We want to help people find a place to call home. When you need a long-term housing solution, one of our permanent housing facilities may be a good fit. Our housing options range from supportive housing facilities for seniors to apartments for vulnerable young adults learning independence. We also have complexes for homeless adults and families.
