180 Degrees provides emergency shelter and supportive programming for homeless and at-risk youth, girls who are victims of sexual exploitation, and men rebuilding lives following incarceration. Programs are located in the Twin Cities metro area including St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Excelsior, Minnesota and in two rural communities, St. Cloud and Rochester.
Founded in 1971, 180 Degrees' first program was a halfway house for ex-felons needing housing, employment, and connection. Through acquisition and programming, 180 Degrees expanded to include additional shelters. Almost all of our clients lives below the Federal Poverty guideline and 85% are people of color.
