St. Paul, Ramsey County to reopen winter shelter


November 1, 2018

An emergency winter shelter for the homeless in downtown St. Paul will open earlier this year and stay open later than it did last year, as health officials and nonprofits race to handle a rising tide of homelessness.

The shelter, first used by Ramsey County and St. Paul last year, will open Thursday and remain open through the end of April, two months longer than last winter. It will house more people each night, up to 64, and stay open two hours longer in the morning to help the homeless find long-term housing or navigate restrictions at other shelters, health officials said.
