Shelter & Support in a Spiritual Setting

Churches United for the Homeless is the largest shelter in northwestern Minnesota and is the only shelter within 225 miles that is able to accommodate single men, single women, and both one and two parent families. We offer a safe haven to those most in need, a chance to reflect on the direction they wish for their lives, and the opportunity to utilize our community's many resources in achieving their goals.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and support in a spiritual setting.

We accomplish this goal by offering spiritual ministry and emotional affirmation to people who are homeless, furnishing a temporary shelter, and referring residents to appropriate services such as job service, social services, mental health services, and programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.


We have received messages concerned about the Percy family who was featured on WDAY. To clear up any rumors, Churches United has a family room opening that will be available to the Percy’s early next week. The Percy Family will receive all donations given specifically for them that are dropped off through Friday at 5pm. This is a unique situation, as Churches United does not typically take donations for specific individuals because everyone we serve is in great need.

In an effort to provide better service, the Community Center at Churches United for the Homeless will continue to be closed during the following dates and times for building maintenance/improvement and staff training.

thru Sept 30
8:30 am – noon
Tuesday thru Friday

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Lisa Lipari, Community Center Director at 218-236-0372.
