Open Your Heart provided the Open Hands Foundation with funding to purchase a new washing machine, dryer and chest freezer for their home for youth in crisis called The Hope House.

Open Hands Foundation raises awareness and support for Hope House™ as they seek to meet the unmet needs of vulnerable people in their community. Hope House™ is a shelter for teens experiencing crisis and homelessness, the only one in the southwest suburbs of Minneapolis. Teens 14-19 receive wrap around services which address their relational, physical and mental wellness needs. Hope House™ has been open for 5 years and in 2020, served more teens than ever before through overnight stays and text for help. Their goal is for teens to exit with support to help them thrive and achieve their future goals.
