Rezek House Transitional Living Program


Rezek House is a unique two-year transitional living program for homeless youth ages 16-21. 

We offer 10 efficiency units for single youth and 2 one-bedroom units for parenting youth. Residents pay “rent” by placing 30% of their income into a savings account. Residents are required to allow their savings to accumulate until they move out, at which time they have a nest-egg to help them in their transition to independent living. By paying rent each month, young people gain skills in budgeting as well as develop rental history.

Located in the heart of the Midway neighborhood in St. Paul, Rezek House is conveniently located near several bus lines and the Metro Green Line, as well as a variety of grocery stores, schools, and retail shops.

To be eligible to live at Rezek, young people must be in school, working, or engaged in job training. Program participants work one on one with a case manager to set and achieve goals during their time at Rezek. Young people also attend regular independent life skills classes, as well as weekly community dinners. These experiences build a sense of community, belonging, and empowerment at Rezek.

Rezek is host to our drop-in center where young people can access a phone, computer, a community kitchen stocked with healthy food, and various classes and event led by staff and community volunteers.
