Who Can Apply?
Our focus is youth and young parents between the ages of 16 and 21 who are homeless, living in unsafe situations, or at imminent risk of homelessness. If we have open units, homeless individuals with a disability of all races, colors, religions, sexes, ages, national origins, family types, and handicaps may be eligible for these units.
On-Site Housing at 610 Patriot Drive, NW
We have six apartments on-site on the second floor at our 610 Patriot Drive location, where our Drop-in Center and Evergreen Youth Services staff are based. These are "starter" apartments to start homeless youth and young families off on the right foot as you work to live independently and juggle many roles. Some of our youth tenants are students, employees, and parents! Our goals is to provide the services and support you need so that you don't feel alone and have a safe adult to help you achieve your goals and problem-solve with when you hit challenges or make a mistake. Typically, youth stay in our on-site apartments for 3-5 months. We can extend stays based on individual needs and situations.
All apartments are furnished and have pots/pans and dishes. Each apartment has its own kitchen, bathroom, living/dining room area, and at least one bedroom. There is a coin laundry room. Our mix of units includes:
- Quad – a four bedroom unit where each person has their own locking bedroom, but common space is shared (bathroom, kitchen, living/dining room). This is most appropriate for single youth.
- One 2 BR Unit – this unit has 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and living/dining room. We usually reserve this unit for a family or a parent with 2 children.
- Four 1-BR Units – each as a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living/dining room.
Each tenant pays 30% of income for rent. Grant funds and community contributions make up the difference. According to our scale, 30% of $0.00 is $0.00 so we will work with you if you are accepted into one of our units but don't have income. Contact us at 218-441-4556 for more information or to apply.

While our focus is homeless adolescents, young adults, and young families, if we have open units, homeless individuals with a disability of all races, colors, religions, sexes, ages, national origins, family types, and handicaps may be eligible for these units.
