Health Care

Promoting health and wellness through free therapeutic and medical services for men, women, and children who reside at the Mission

Mental Health Care

To meet the growing mental health care needs among people experiencing homelessness in the Mission community, we have expanded our mental health services by opening a new clinic. By providing services onsite, we can provide easy accessibility and the opportunity to integrate the clinic’s services with our other programs and offerings. The clinic provides:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Intelligence, learning, neuropsychological and personality testing
  • Inter-disciplinary case management for all Mission students
  • Conversations about God as invited and appropriate

Plus the clinic will provide training for Mission staff to promote best practices in the care for all students.

Mental Health Care Hours

The mental health clinic is open:

  • Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Become an Intern

The mental health office will also provide clinical supervision for graduate and doctoral-level college interns requiring continuing education credits.

If you’re interested in becoming an intern at the clinic contact Clinical Director Dr. Meaghan Johansen.

Medical Care

In partnership with Healthcare for the Homeless, the Mission provides basic health care to our residents and emergency shelter clients. The team screens for tuberculosis, administers and manages medications, and treats minor injuries.

Medical Care Hours

The medical clinic is open:

  • Tuesdays 7 a.m. to noon
  • Thursdays 7 a.m. to noon, 1-5 p.m.

Dental Care

Thousands of people in need have gotten quality dental care through the Mission’s free dental clinic. As of October 2017, the clinic has branched off as Hope Dental Clinic, conveniently located at 800 Minnehaha Ave., in St. Paul. The warm and friendly clinic offers the same quality dental services as always at little to no cost including cleanings, extractions, and more.
