BENEFITING: AVENUES FOR HOMELESS YOUTH
Avenues for Homeless Youth provides emergency shelter, short-term housing and supportive services for homeless youth in a safe and nurturing environment. Through such service, Avenues seeks to help youth achieve their personal goals and make a positive transition into young adulthood. There is a shelter in my neighborhood (Brooklyn Park) and another in North Minneapolis. In addition to these shelters Avenues also has host home programs for youth interested in a longer term, family setting. Most people who aren't personally affected by homelessness have no idea about the number of MN youth who are homeless (in shelters, on the street or couch hopping) every night. Mu daughter, Kailey spent her senior year of high school working on a project focused on youth homelessness in MN and was able to partner with Avenues. I have been fortunate to learn about Avenues from Kailey and I support their mission and want to help in any way I can. When I found out I could lift some heavy s*#t and help Avenues I was in!! Please support Avenues by donating or coming out to show your support on June 24th!!
