What is the Annex Teen Clinic all about? »

We value HEALTHY SEXUALITY

Sexuality education is for everyone, not just people who are sexually active. Sex ed includes many parts of our lives and identities: communication skills, healthy relationships, taking care of yourself, goal setting, and more. We trust you to make informed decisions when given honest information. We keep it real!

We value ACCESS

Don’t let money or transportation keep you from coming in and getting the services you need to take care of yourself. We will work with you to ensure you get what you need! Wherever you are, feel free to contact us or check out our website for up-to-date info.

We value EXCELLENCE

We want your experiences with the Annex to be the best that they can be. We are always open to hearing your suggestions and ideas. We will work with you to make the Annex the safe, supportive and reliable choice!

We value MUTUAL ENRICHMENT

At the Annex, people of all ages learn from and teach each other. We want to hear your point of view and perspective. We have staff from different life experiences, cultures and backgrounds so you can find a trusted adult to connect with. To get more involved with the Annex, check out our youth advisory council!

We value being RELEVANT

We value each of you as an unique individual. We know you are not all the same. At the Annex, you can be yourself! We keep your business safe and confidential. We are here to support, trust and understand where you’re coming from.

History »


Located in Robbinsdale, the Annex Teen Clinic was founded in 1971 through the joint efforts of Holy Nativity Lutheran Church and St. Raphael’s Roman Catholic Church. We were the “teen annex” of the church. The clinic’s services were originally limited to testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, with a strong emphasis on health education. In later years, the Annex became an independent, nonprofit agency, and services were expanded to include more comprehensive sexuality-related health services.

Today the Annex provides low cost, sexuality-related health care, education, counseling and outreach to adolescents in Northwest Hennepin County and North Minneapolis. All services are confidential and are offered at low cost (using a sliding fee scale) or at no cost. Because so many people knew us over the years as the “teen annex,” the name “annex” just stuck; this is the origin of our name.

In April of 2011, the Annex moved from the basement of the Historic Robbinsdale Library to its new location only 6 blocks away at 5810 42nd Ave in Robbinsdale.
