What I love about Aspen House is we not only provide a safe place for displaced youth, but our dedicated team supports our youth’s mental health needs during their stay.

What Is Aspen House?

Aspen House is community-based facility for teens in Dakota and Washington counties who temporarily need a safe place to live. Youth in our care have private bedrooms and access to mental health and educational services during their stay and is staffed 24/7.

Who We Serve

Displaced youth ages 12-18 who need a short-term (up to 90 days) place to stay and don’t require emergency department services or a locked facility. 

Our Approach to Treatment

Aspen House will not only provide temporary housing but also incorporate mental health assessments and services, recreational activities, educational instruction, coordination with outside supports, stabilization services, and on-going connections with family support systems.

Our goal is to help youth return to a safe, permanent home.

Who Can Make A Referral?

Juvenile probation and social service partners in Dakota and Washington counties will identify and determine youth who are appropriate for placement. Service partners can make direct referrals by filling out this form or calling 651-447-4090. 

REASONS WHY A YOUTH NOT BE ADMITTED

All referrals will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. A youth may be turned down due to:

  • Current physical aggression. 
  • Current active suicidal ideation that can’t be mitigated.
  • Elopement risk.
  • Active substance use.
  • Unable to be independent with activities of daily living (ADL).
  • Use of injectable medicines that can’t be self-administered (other than EpiPen).
  • No smoking, chewing, or vaping is allowed on the premises.
