The Drop-In Center

The Teens Alone Drop-In Center, is a new, safe and supportive place where young people like you can come when there’s nowhere else to turn. Located in the Eisenhower Community Center (1001 Highway 7), Hopkins, in room 237, it is the first homeless youth drop-in center in the west metro.

We listened! Planned by a group of homeless young people and our youth advisory board, The Drop-In Center is a home-away-from-home (ages 16-25) offering basic health care needs, long-term housing referrals and help finding a job. It is a welcoming environment where you can connect with other teens, but it is also a place where you can find help with problems.

Our hours:
Monday-Thursday: 2:30-5:30 p.m.

During a visit to The Drop-In Center, you will have access to:

  • A caring, trusting adult to talk to
  • Food and housing assistance
  • Help obtaining a social security card, state ID’s, birth certificates, etc.
  • Personal hygiene products and clean clothes
  • Safe and secure lockers
  • Sound and trusted legal advice

Our services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. They are available to young adults (ages 12-25) who attend school and/or reside in the Eden Prairie, Hopkins, St. Louis Park or Wayzata school districts. We also serve students attending Main Street School of the Performing Arts.
