Provincial House family shelter approved by Planning Commission

Project Home at the Provincial House

Today, the City of Saint Paul's Planning Commission unanimously approved a conditional use permit for Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul, officially confirming that the organization may use the Provincial House as a family shelter. The shelter is tentatively scheduled to open in late March.

About the Provincial House
Ramsey County, Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet will use the Provincial House on Randolph Avenue in Saint Paul as a temporary shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Supported by funding from Ramsey County for site operations, Interfaith Action will lease the building to serve approximately 20 families through its Project Home program. The program serves families with minor children, of whom 90% are under the age of 12. In addition to providing temporary shelter, Interfaith Action’s Rapid Exit Support Team will operate on site to assist families in finding permanent, affordable housing options and connect them with employment and educational opportunities.

Ramsey County and its partners have leveraged CARES funding to provide emergency shelter, temporary housing in hotels and respite care facilities for those experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more here.
