The Duluth Runaway & Homeless Youth service includes an anonymous, 24-hour crisis line. Call this free and confidential number anytime day or night. We are here to listen and help no matter what you’re going through.

Emergency Hotline: 218.626.2726

Contact us if:

  • you are a young person who is thinking of running away from home.
  • you have a friend who has run away and is looking for help.
  • you have run away and want to communicate with your parents, but you aren’t sure how.
  • you are worried about a young person and want information on how you can help.

We Focus on Your Safety First

We provide safe and secure shelter for youth 17 years and younger. Youth can stay at Bethany Crisis Shelter for up to 21 days while they explore their options and determine what’s next.
