The Red Lake Homeless Shelter provides emergency shelter to families and single adults over the age of 18 inside the homeless shelter providing beds, meals, showers and transit transportation with case management to look for housing and other resources residents may be eligible to receive.

We have different grants with the state of Minnesota that allow us to provide rental subsidies where we pay up to 70% of a clients rent. We have 14 rental subsidies with the Minnesota Housing and Finance Agency (MHFA) and these subsidies can last up to five years. We have 5 with the Transitional Housing Program (THP) and these subsidies can last up to two years.

We have a Long Term Homelessness (LTH) grant that helps clients who qualify get housed with a security or utility deposit. This grant would also help with birth certificates, drivers license or background check fee only to secure housing. We also have a Family Homeless Prevention Assistance Program (FHPAP) grant where we could help with back rent and security deposits to prevent client’s from homelessness. We also can pay for a first or last month’s rent, security deposit if they are already homeless to get them housed. This grant has very little funding so we don’t use it as often. We have a Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) grant that helps veterans and their families with various needs.

The eligibility criteria is that a person must be an enrolled member of a federally recognized Indian Tribe and also be 18 years of age for all services except the Student Work Orientation service, which is 16 years of age or older.

We have a HUD Section 811 program that we call the Red Lake Supportive Housing 1rental program. This housing includes 14 units built in 7 duplexes, some of which are located in each of the four communities on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. All units will be restricted to disabled households. A disabled household means a household composed of one or more persons, at least one of whom is an adult (18 years or older) who has a significant disability. For purposes of this housing, eligible disabilities include those that are physical, mental health, or developmental in nature.

The Blackduck Area History and Art Center (BAHAC) is located at the top of the Lady Slipper Scenic Byway in northern Minnesota. Although some artifacts are specific to this area, we provide a “stepping back in time” experience that can be enjoyed whether you are specifically interested in this area, or history in general. The displays excite children as well as adults, and indeed we feel a special mission to bring the past to life for children.

The co-located TIN PAN gALLErY focuses on giving local artists a place to showcase their works. Featured artists’ shows are generally on display for a month. In between shows there is always an interesting variety of art on exhibit. We have truly fulfilled our mission of providing art opportunities for all ages, as we have featured everything from pre-school and kindergarten art project displays to a special artist show for an artist in her eighth decade.

In the year 2000, the Blandin/Blackduck Visioning Committee began collecting historical memorabilia as part of its 2001 Centennial Celebration planning process. The items collected came from the geographic area covered by the Blackduck School District, a 435 square mile area that includes 13 townships and the cities of Blackduck, Tenstrike, Funkley and Squaw Lake. The need for a permanent storage area for all that had been collected spurred discussions about finding a location to store the items. This evolved to the possibility of an actual history center – a place to showcase and preserve our area’s heritage while educating our young people and operating a key attraction for residents and tourists alike. In January 2005, the Blackduck Arts Council decided to partner with the BAHAC to add an arts component to the proposed Center. Working together, the History and Art Center opened its doors to the public August 19, 2006.

We live in a resort area with unlimited opportunities for outdoor recreation amidst our scenic forests, lakes and bogs. Although we are a small town we draw people from a large area. We feel fortunate to have a library, movie theater, bowling alley, golf course, city park, restaurants and some pretty interesting shopping opportunities. People travel for miles to visit and shop at Anderson Fabrics Outlet Store. Nearby attractions include the Big Bog State Park, The Lost 40, Chippewa National Forest campgrounds, Camp Rabideau (the most well-preserved CCC Camp in the nation – a National Historic Landmark) and the Lady Slipper Scenic Byway, to name a few. We’re sure you’ll want to visit us soon!

Mission Statement

To preserve materials, objects and data related to our diverse population; to remember the past, live in the present, and educate our youth for the future.

To promote the arts in our community by putting a face on the artists of the area and providing art opportunities for our residents from ages 8 to 80.
