Emergency Shelters

Partners for Affordable Housing is best known for the two homeless shelters in Mankato:

  • Theresa House
  • Welcome Inn

Our two shelters provide emergency and short-term transitional housing for homeless and near-homeless individuals and families. Guests at the shelter have access to a social worker and enjoy the security of a facility that is staffed 24/7 with on-site paid employees.

Between the two shelters, we can accommodate up to 30 individuals or 11 families. Guests are provided simple bedrooms with a shared kitchen, bathroom and living space. Some small, private apartments are also available for families.
