Who We Help

RTH Helps Those Facing Homelessness

RTH does not discriminate against anyone based on race, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, color, disability, religion, or criminal history.

RTH works predominantly with homeless populations, of course, but the agency also helps those that are at risk of becoming homeless.

The geographical region we serve is in the Northern St. Louis County area and we conveniently have two office locations in Virginia, and Hibbing, Minnesota.

If you are currently homeless, or at risk, you must call 211 or text “Homeless” to 85511 to start the process.
