Open Your Heart provided Avenues for Youth with funding toward replacement bed frames and memory foam mattresses.
Avenues partners with youth experiencing homelessness to achieve their dreams. For more than 28 years, Avenues has supported youth ages 16-24 in Hennepin County. Whether a young person needs someplace to stay for just one night, or a year and a half, Avenues support youth to find their path out of homelessness. They do that by providing a stable home, building trusting relationships, and navigating the youth’s education, career, health and wellness and housing goals.
This grant will improve the quality of Avenues’ crisis and basic needs services. When given a safe place to call home and the support of caring adults, youth experiencing homelessness can grow into thriving young adulthood.
