Homeless Outreach/Street Services
As part of the St. Cloud Churches Community Meal ministry, we provide an evening meal at 5 pm all year around free of charge to anyone in need. Call 203-7881 to volunteer.
We also facilitate the Church of the Week Sheltering Program, which runs from Oct.-May each year as needed. We provide shelter for those in need if the local shelters are full or families and individuals are unable to get into the shelters. Check-in is from 5 to 6 pm.
After leveling off in the mid-2000s the number of homeless people in Minnesota is way up.
On October 22, 2009, 9,452 homeless adults, youth, and children were counted in shelters, transitional housing, and on the streets. This compares to 7,751 counted in 2006.
