A nonprofit organization

Safety. Hope. Healing.

Tubman is the state's largest provider of domestic violence shelter beds and we have been serving people in and around the Twin Cities for nearly 50 years. With your support, we help people in the aftermath of violence and trauma find safety and stability through our full continuum of services, including emergency shelter, transitional housing, Orders for Protection and legal advocacy, mental and chemical health treatment and therapy, youth intensive case management and outreach, violence prevention education and more. 

This year, Tubman will offer safety, hope, and healing to about 17,000 people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds who are facing violence, exploitation, homelessness, addiction, mental health challenges and other forms of trauma. 

But, we cannot do this work without the financial support of people in our community

Your gift will help people overcome barriers and move from fear to freedom. 

Here is Tanya's story who recently came to Tubman... 

When Tanya came to Tubman with her daughter, she was pregnant and within days of giving birth to her second child. Over the past year her husband had become more controlling and abusive. The threats, constant fear, and isolation had become too much.  She knew it was time to leave before something tragic happened. 

After a few months in shelter, Tanya shared, “Tubman was exactly what I needed. It felt good to be able to leave the hospital and bring my baby somewhere safe. Even though it wasn’t permanent, it felt great.”  Support from Tubman helped her transition from homelessness to a new job and a new home.  She also gained the confidence and skills to help her maintain safety, hope, and personal stability in the face of life's challenges.  

“It’s been everything for me,” says Tanya. “I moved in with a couple bags and nothing else.  I’ve come a long way from that day and I know that’s because of Tubman.” 

Tubman helps people find safety and housing in the literal, life changing sense, while providing support services to foster healing and a stable future. Together, with your generosity, we can ensure critical services are available when they're needed most. 

Your gift sends a message of hope to survivors.  It tells them you believe in them, that you believe in their worth, and that they deserve safety, hope, and healing. 

On behalf of everyone at Tubman, our deepest thanks!
