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.

Temporary and emergency shelter for homeless families and pregnant women.
Village of Hope promotes self worth and independence through the provision of temporary shelter and supportive services for families experiencing homelessness. We are unable to house individuals without families.
Residents are selected in accordance with the following eligibility criteria:
- The family unit must be homeless as defined by HUD guidelines.
- The primary applicant must be at least 18 years old and either pregnant or have primary guardianship/custody of one or more dependent children ages 17 or younger.
- All qualified households whose income at the time of initial occupancy does not exceed 50% or greater of the statewide or area median household income as determined by HUD and adjusted for families of five or more.
- Extended family members residing with the family prior to application for shelter at Village of Hope will be included in the definition of the “family unit”.
- The applicant must not be currently abusing alcohol or drugs.
- The applicant must be stable on psychiatric medications and prescribed medications for medical conditions and be willing to take them as prescribed.
- The applicant’s criminal history will be reviewed on an individual basis. Certain offenses may result in denial of admission. These may include sexual offenses requiring the tenant to register with local officials, violent crimes against persons or property, assault, arson or destruction of property.
- The applicant must not pose a risk of serious harm to self or others.
- The applicant must express a definite and informed desire to enter the emergency shelter program, including actively participating in a housing search and case management program.
- The applicant must be willing to accept group living including:
~A tolerance and respect for other shelter residents and staff,
~A willingness to adhere to shelter rules,
~A willingness to fully participate in maintaining the shelter and sharing cleaning and maintenance duties.
- If applicant is eligible for Group Residential Housing (GRH), the applicant must be willing to assist VILLAGE OF HOPE in verifying the requirements including documentation of:
~Disability and/or chemical dependency,
~Income and/or asset verification confirming applicant fits the requirements of the program.
Clients or referents call the central intake number (218-751-0722). General questions are answered regarding eligibility, homelessness, and anticipated openings. Referents that are not able to be accommodated immediately are placed on an optional waiting list while every attempt is made to assist the referent in identifying an alternative shelter plan.
Upon vacancy of a family unit the waiting list is reviewed and families with the highest level of need are invited to participate in the application process. This process includes the opportunity to:
1. View the facility
2. Review the terms of the agreement to participate in a housing search and case management
3. Review the resident rules
4. Sign releases of information to verify homelessness
5. Sign releases of information to verify income
Homelessness is determined by utilizing a checklist for eligibility and receiving the verification by a third party in writing, on the Minnesota Housing ”Housing Status Verification/Referral Form” whenever possible. In cases where no written independent verification is possible from a shelter, a case manager or other 3rd party, clients must complete and sign the Minnesota Housing “Housing Status Self-Certification Form” .
Once homelessness is verified, in writing, on the forms provided by Village of Hope, and exclusionary criteria are determined not applicable, applicants are forwarded to the Executive Director for review.
If an applicant is approved, they are accepted and will be allowed to move into Village of Hope. Once a room is available, the homeless advocates will coordinate a move-in date and time with the applicant.
