Open Your Heart is proud to highlight our grantee partner, Avenues for Youth. Thanks to our generous supporters, Open Your Heart recently granted Avenues for Youth funding toward the replacement of washers and dryers at the facility.

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 supports 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 support from Open Your Heart will improve energy efficiency, provide cost savings to the organization, and improve usability for staff and residents.

“Thank you so much for this support! As someone who was recently without a dryer at home, I know the impact it makes to have these services readily available. The laundry room is right next to the computers, so youth can easily spend time on schoolwork or career development while their laundry is running!” – Avenues for Youth

Thank you, Avenues for Youth, for everything you do!
