Afraid you can’t pay?

No insurance? Not sure? No problem. We’ll get you the care you need. No one is turned away based on their ability to pay. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you sign up. If you don’t qualify for any insurance programs, we will charge only what you can afford.

How we can help you…

When life gets tough, or you’re not feeling good, talk to us.

At Face to Face, you can find support in so many ways at both of our Saint Paul locations. Teens and youth including you can get screened and treated for STIs, tested for HIV, talk about and get birth control, and see an OB or midwife for prenatal care — as well as general medical care for coughs and scrapes — at low or no cost. If you need more help, our case managers can help you navigate insurance, housing, WIC, and more. You can see a medical professional at our Arcade or SafeZone location.

Our counselors specialize in talking to young people, and they can be seen for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationships, school and work, sexuality and gender identity, past or current abuse, trauma, grief/loss, or anything that’s causing you stress or difficulty. You can see a counselor at Arcade location, at SafeZone, or in your home through our in-home therapy program if you’re in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area.

If you need help meeting your basic needs, we are here for you. At SafeZone in downtown Saint Paul, you can eat two hot meals a day, take a shower, and leave with personal care items like pads, tampons and clothing. You can meet with a case manager to help with housing, school, finding a job and so much more.

No matter how you need help, you can find confidential, nonjudgmental care at Face to Face.

Too embarrassed to talk?

That’s OK. Write it down if you have trouble asking your questions out loud. You don’t need to set up an appointment to stop by the Arcade Clinic or the SafeZone. Find out when we’re open.
