Rezek House Transitional Living
Rezek House, located in Saint Paul, is a two-year transitional living program for youth ages 16-21 experiencing homeless.
Rezek offers 10 efficiency units for single youth as well as two one-bedroom units for parenting youth. The youth we support pay “rent” by placing 30 percent of their income into a savings account. They 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. Paying monthly rent empowers young people in gaining budgeting skills and developing rental history.
Located in the heart of St. Paul's Midway neighborhood, Rezek is conveniently near several bus lines and the Metro Green Line. It is also close to a variety of grocery stores, schools and retail shops.
Rezek also includes a drop-in center/resource hub. Designated for young people in our programs, the drop-in center provides access to a phone, computer, community kitchen stocked with healthy food, and various classes and events led by staff and community volunteers. It also houses our employment specialist, who supports youth in exploring career options and employment goals.
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. 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.
