Cornerstone’s secure shelter is a safe place for adults and their children escaping a dangerous or escalating situation. Our emergency services are focused on serving the immediate safety and support needs of individuals impacted by domestic violence, sexual violence and/or human trafficking. Cornerstone’s 35 bed shelter is thoughtfully designed to feature family living spaces, including one fully handicap accessible unit, a teen room, youth room and woman’s lounge. Laundry facilities and telephones are also available.
Please call Cornerstone’s 24-hour helpline, 952-884-0330 , or the Minnesota Day One Crisis Hotline at 1-866-223-1111 if you or someone you know is seeking shelter. Always call 911 if you are in immediate danger.
Male victims receive safe and comfortable alternative housing while accessing Cornerstone’s comprehensive services. This option is also available for elderly or transgender individuals who might not be comfortable in a shelter setting.
Navigating the maze of government and social service agencies can be a difficult burden for survivors.

Whether they need counseling, therapy, legal support, transitional housing or other services, our staff provide support and encouragement for individuals and their families to rebuild their lives.
Cornerstone staff are here to help survivors develop a safety plan that works for them. If you or someone you know is in a potentially dangerous relationship, it’s important to develop a safety plan.
