Dubbed the “living room of the homeless,” Listening House is a day shelter and community center providing hospitality, practical assistance and guidance to men and women who are disadvantaged, homeless or lonely.
People in transition or crisis feel isolated and need a welcoming space where they can feel connected and accepted. Listening House strives to create a safe environment that supports people going through change, knowing we are not change-makers and that lasting change must come from within. They accept people where they’re at; set expectations for courteous, lawful behavior and help them plan a course forward.
A basic safety net of services includes hygiene products, clothing, message delivery, telephone use, haircuts, foot care (including socks/shoes/boots) and essential first aide. Onsite partner professionals consist of mental and chemical health outreach teams, housing advocates, chiropractic care, medical screening and veteran’s assistance.
Twin Cities Salvation Army supports the community to empower youth, provide housing, strengthen families, overcome poverty, cure hunger and combat addiction.
Flying Pig Thrift makes a weekly donation to the Salvation Army of donated goods that we cannot sell. The Salvation Army takes our donation and either puts out donations at their store or repairs or repurposes items. We are grateful to be able to support the Salvation Army in this way.
