Be our guest at a complimentary fundraising luncheon to become part of the movement to end youth experiencing homelessness in our community.
Did you know that 2,500 Minnesota youth are homeless every night? A 46 percent increase since 2006, according to a 2009 study by the Wilder Foundation.
What explains the increase? More rebelliousness? No. More bad kids? We don’t believe in bad kids. An uncertain economy? Maybe. Whatever the reason, the outcomes are the same. These are children forced by circumstance to face adult challenges before they should.
Youth experiencing homelessness need more than just a bed, they need to be supported and cared for at this critical moment in their lives.
LSS Homeless Youth Services strives to help young people get off the streets and into a safe environment through a continuum of services. Services include street outreach by non-judgmental staff; short and long-term shelters; transitional housing for teen moms and their children; counseling to establish stability and a healthy life-style; and independent living education. Our goal is to make certain these youth know they are important, cared for, and have a place to turn for safety, dignity and hope.
Join us and be inspired by stories told by courageous youth who were homeless but found safety with LSS. No minimum or maximum contribution required.
