Twin Cities Community Voice Mail cannot offer housing. But it can make information about emergency and transitional housing for both adults and youth more easily accessible. Easing access to safe places to sleep is a logical extension of TCCVM's mission.
TCCVM utilizes its communications network to provide a hotline offering information about metro area emergency shelters and transitional housing programs.
The Metro Shelter Hotline operates through a toll-free number, 1-888-234-1329, to link homeless callers to shelter information, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Metro Shelter Hotline gives information on specific admission requirements and where and how to receive pre-approval in their county. This helps people seeking shelter avoid multiple phone calls--and the hotline is available even during evening hours when regular offices are closed.
