Mission Statement

The mission of St. Stephen's Human Services is ending homelessness.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments From July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, St. Stephen’s served 1,918 single adults and 651 families (a total of 4,181 people) through street outreach, emergency shelter, and housing programs. 105 families received prevention services to keep them from losing their housing 186 unsheltered individuals received mobile case management from Street Outreach 1,385 adults were provided shelter for at least one night 477 single adults, 836 parents, and 1,427 children accessed housing with supportive services 445 households transitioned from homelessness to housing
Current Goals Our primary goal is to support people experiencing homelessness in achieving permanent, affordable housing. We envision a community in which housing instability is rare, brief, and non-recurring, ending homelessness as we know it. 40% of clients receiving street-level case management from Street Outreach will exit program stably housed 1,000+ adults will be provided emergency shelter for at least one night 500+ individuals and 500+ families will access housing with supportive services 95% of households receiving prevention services will exit program stably housed
Community or Constituency Served St. Stephen's offers services to individuals and families at risk of losing their housing or who are experiencing homelessness. We operate 2 year-round shelters for 100 individuals where people can stay in a safe place while accessing additional services to secure stable housing. Our Street Outreach team works with people living in places not meant for human habitation. They help people navigate the various crises that occur while lacking stable housing and meet people where they are at to address immediate basic needs for safety and survival outside while assisting them in their process towards permanent housing. We have a variety of adult and family housing programs with comprehensive supportive services to help prevent homelessness and/or ensure their experience with homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring.
Geographic Area Served We serve Hennepin County and the Greater Twin Cities metro area.
