When I go to sleep at night I want everything to be off on my phone but I still want to be able to receive calls from ONE SINGLE person in case of emergencies. Is there a way to do this?

Yes you can do it.
First thing you gotta do is "star" the contact from which you want to receive the call. You can do that by opening the specific contact and tapping on that star icon on the top right corner of the screen. Then go to Settings>Sound>Do Not Disturb>Priority only allows>Calls>From starred contacts only.
Give it a try and report if it works or not.

I do that exactly that way and can confirm it. Just made the contact(s) to my favourites and when my device goes into do not disturb mode from 10:30 pm to 7 o'clock am only these contact(s) can call me.
