STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Program) offers services to residents who are experiencing a crisis. STEP’s mission is to strengthen our community by responding to the basic emergency needs of individuals and families in St. Louis Park. STEP services include:
  • St. Louis Park’s local Food Shelf: provides for the food needs of St. Louis Park residents through a appointment-based, shopping system
  • Clothes Closet: provides for the clothing needs by offering gently-used clothing items to St. Louis Park residents for free
  • Transportation Assistance: provides rides to STEP for food as well as to medical and other essential appointments (inside and outside of SLP)
  • Financial Assistance: provides financial assistance in specific situations—contact STEP for more information and to see if you qualify
  • Social Work Support: Social Workers are available to help with problem solving, advocacy and finding additional resources
  • Seasonal Programs:
    - Back to School Program: provides grade-appropriate school supplies as well as backpacks to St. Louis Park children entering grades K-12. (Program is held every August)
    - Holiday Program: provides holiday food and toys to St. Louis Park households during November/December holidays.

To support STEP services, the organization is thankful for the generous support from the community of monetary and in-kind donations as well as volunteer support. STEP accepts in-kind donations of food and personal care items as well as gently-used clothing and linens.
