Get Help Today

At Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless our primary goal is to ensure that front line providers of crisis services have the tools, equipment, and infrastructure necessary to carry out their work. While we continuously support homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters and food shelves throughout the state of Minnesota, we do not provide direct supportive services. If you or someone you know is in need of help, please visit one of the resources below. If you are unable to find what you need on this page, please contact us at [email protected].
