You'll receive the help you deserve - Immediately.
One call, one result: your safety
Making the Call: You can directly dial the MN Day One® Crisis line (1.866.223.1111) from anywhere in Minnesota, or call any program in the Day One® network (click on the map see a list of programs in your area).
The Response: An advocate at a program nearby will answer your call and check that you are in a safe place to talk about your situation.
Reaching Safety: If you decide to go to a shelter or safe home, an advocate will help you find one using the Day One® Process.
The Day One® Process: If the first program you talk to cannot accept you, or is not safe for you to go to, the advocate will check the Day One® database and find a program that may have open beds and services to accommodate you.
Telling Your Story: While on the phone, you will only have to explain your story one time, to one advocate. The advocate will listen to you and help you make a plan to keep you and your family safe.
