The Loft

Life House's new expansion is a ten-bed teen emergency shelter called The Loft.

The lack of affordable housing in Duluth plus misinformation - or no information - about why kids end up on the streets means there is still a gap between the number of kids with nowhere to go every night in Duluth  (100 on average) and the number of beds available.

Lack of affordable housing ... and a lack of imagination?  Life House director Maude Dornfeld says most people "can't imagine not loving their kids."
