Open Your Heart provided funding to The Link to help support students experiencing homelessness holistically, by providing funds for basic needs items including hygiene supplies and clothing essentials, school-led excursions and sports, transportation assistance, student technology needs, and community memberships.

The Link is a youth and adult led Minneapolis-based nonprofit dedicated to helping young people build brighter, more stable futures. Two African American community leaders and former Minnesota Vikings, Jim Marshall and Oscar Reed, founded The Link in 1991.Since its inception 29 years ago, The Link has worked with youth experiencing homelessness (including young parents experiencing homelessness), sexual exploitation, mental health issues, youth at-risk of abandoning school, and/or involved in the juvenile justice system. Thank you The Link for all that you do for youth experiencing homelessness!
