Dental services are available on a first-come, first-serve basis whenever a dentist is available. We provide extractions and fillings only. Please call our main number 612-338-4640 to check for dates and times to come. Dental clinic is located downstairs at our Day Services center. All services are free of charge and services are provided for those who have little to no dental coverage.

Beds can be ordered for those who have recently moved into an apartment/home (within the last 30 days). Beds are placed on a first-come, first-serve basis in person on Monday mornings starting at 10:30AM and end when we have an order of 50 beds. We deliver to Minneapolis and some connecting suburbs. We do not deliver to some areas of St. Paul and other metro locations. We are still able to order beds for clients not living within our delivery areas as long as clients can pick up their beds. Beds are full or twin-size and are new or gently used. We will order one bed per individual/up to two beds for families of two or more people in their households. You must bring your lease and some form of identification.
