Please call 911 in an emergency.
Help is available to you no matter where you’re located in the state of Minnesota. Regardless of the time of day, you can get connected to resources and learn about your options. Whether you’re experiencing domestic violence, sexual violence or human trafficking or simply questioning aspects of your relationship, advocates are ready to listen and provide information.
The Minnesota Day One Crisis Line is staffed around the clock, seven days a week. When you call, you’ll connect with an advocate who can provide options and help you access safe housing and other resources you need. The abuse is not your fault. You are not alone.
Our caring advocates are available for:
• Support: 24-hour crisis supportive services
• Safety: Getting and keeping you and your family safe
• Housing: Providing emergency shelter and safe housing
• Resources: Support groups, transitional housing, legal advocacy, culturally specific services and more
We can provide a variety of resources for those seeking information—including referrals to support groups, possible transitional housing in your area and options for legal advocacy. If you are questioning unhealthy aspects of your own relationship or are concerned about a loved one, we are here to listen.
Protection for Pets:
We know that approximately 71% of animal owners entering emergency shelters reported that their abusers had injured, maimed, killed or threatened family pets for revenge or psychological control (Ascione, 1997). Abusers often threaten to hurt beloved family pets to prevent victims from leaving.
Cornerstone maintains an innovative partnership with the Humane Society and a local animal hospital. You can breathe easier knowing that your pets will receive safe shelter and medical attention during your stay in emergency housing.
