Resources for the Homeless
Carver County does not offer housing services, and there are no shelters for the homeless in Carver County or Scott County. If you are homeless or are going to lose your housing, contact the CAP Agency during regular business hours and ask for Emergency Assistance.
The nearest homeless shelters are in Minneapolis. The Sharing and Caring Hands shelter Mary’s Place and the Families Moving Forward emergency shelter program accept families from Carver County if space is available. First Call for Help (211) can help families and individuals determine what shelters have openings, or you can call the Open Access Communications Metro Shelter Hotline.
Call 211 or 1-888-234-1329
