Project Home provides 24/7 support for families facing homelessness.
For more than 23 years, Project Home has provided overnight shelter for area families facing homelessness in partnership with dozens of area churches, synagogues, and schools. Additionally, in 2019, Project Home added day shelter services and rapid exit case management services. This 24/7 support helps families achieve both stability and economic mobility through assistance in finding permanent, affordable housing and employment.
Project Home at the Provincial House
When the pandemic hit in March 2020, area faith communities could understandably no longer host guests. Project Home families moved to two sites downtown Saint Paul until March 2021, when Interfaith Action joined with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and Ramsey County to open a shelter in the Provincial House, the former home of the Sisters, located at 1880 Randolph Avenue in the Highland Park neighborhood of Saint Paul. This site is now providing shelter, employment and rapid exit housing support for approximately 20 families with minor children. Learn more
During the pandemic, we must limit the amount of volunteer contact with Project Home guests. Learn about safe opportunities here.

“Volunteering at Project Home is our chance to be hospitable in the same way my parents were. It’s really important that my kids see it as hospitality. Hospitality is really all about forgetting oneself and attending to the needs of the other.”
—Peter Distelzweig, Church of Saint Mark volunteer
