The five Minneapolis shelters serving single adults in Hennepin County have formed the Single Adult Shelter Collaborative. On October 17, 2016, the Collaborative opened the Adult Shelter Connect in order to assist single adults experiencing homelessness in accessing and navigating the single adult shelter system in a more logical and dignified way.

Individuals will need to visit the Adult Shelter Connect (ASC) for an assessment and placement at one of the five Minneapolis shelters and referrals to other services.    

ASC Direct Line:  612.248.2350

Simpson Housing Services oversees the day-to-day operations on behalf of the Single Adult Shelter Collaborative. 

Adult Shelter Connect is funded by Hennepin County’s Human Services and Public Health Department.
