I am very thankful that I have never been homeless and that my six grandchildren all have very good homes. Youth homelessness is a big problem. In Anoka County the non-profit Hope 4 Youth is trying to do something about it. I have been a life-long educator and supporter of youth, their education, their health, and their future. Supporting my participation in the Darkest Night of Your Life 4K sponsored by Hope 4 Youth is an excellent way to provide hope for homeless youth.
