Ramsey County has appointed a new manager for the temporary shelter at Stub Hall. Maina Ngunyi begins work today, Monday, October 18. He can be reached at 651-485-9230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2020 Luther Seminary leased Stub Hall to Ramsey County to temporarily house women and couples experiencing homelessness. The shelter operates as a referral program. Other existing shelters and outreach teams made up of community partners and law enforcement refer qualified people to the facility, which operates 24/7. Once referred, residents can stay for several days.
Serving a community need in this way is consistent with Luther Seminary’s Welcome Statement that says: In Christ, all are neighbors one to another. In a dynamic of mutual welcome, we seek to learn from one another’s particularities, including but not limited to differences of race, ethnicity, nationality, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic circumstance, dis/ability, political perspective, ecclesial tradition, and theological commitments.
The lease expires on May 31, 2022.
