About.  BIPOC-led since 1973, 180 Degrees builds on 50+ years of racial equity advocacy to help children and adults break the destructive cycle of trauma created by poverty, racism, homelessness, and sexual exploitation.  

Mission. 180 Degrees creates safe spaces and services that honor each individual's healing journey.  Over 1,000 youth, adults, and families access our emergency shelters, supportive housing, and community-based services

Give with Confidence. 180 Degrees meets the highest standards of non-profit transparency and accountability, earning Platinum seals of approval from Guidestar and Charities Review Council.

Your Impact.  When you give to 180 Degrees:

  • 350 homeless & trafficked youth under 18 receive safe Emergency Shelter through our network of regional shelters in St. Paul, Chanhassen, Rochester, and St. Cloud.  
  • 200 men exiting prison receive short-term housing and are connected to jobs, supportive housing, and ongoing support giving them a new start so that they can positvely contribute to their communities.
  • 500 homeless & trafficked youth, families experiencing domestic violence, and children involved in the criminal justice system receive food, clothing, transportation, and structured support  
  • 75% of our clients are BIPOC and 35% of youth in our emergency shelters identify as LGBTQ. Your gift provides support to people who experience historical and systemic barriers, putting them at higher risk for homelessness.

$50,000 New Donor Challege. The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation will grant $50,000 in funds to 180 Degrees if we can raise $50,000 from new supporters this year.   

"All or Nothing". We must raise the full $50,000 to get this $50,000 grant. 

New donors, now is the time to give. Your donation today can unlock an additional $50,000 in funding for homeless & trafficked youth - when demand for shelter is at an all-time high. 

Any Size Gift. Your donation -- of any size -- has the power to bring $50,000 more to Minnesota youth and families experiencing their most vulnerable moments.
