Who We Are

On any given night in Minnesota, 6,000 young people are without a home. They’re sleeping in cars, couch-hopping or struggling to survive on the streets. HOPE 4 Youth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Anoka County that helps young people, ages 16 to 24, who are experiencing homelessness in the northern Twin Cities metro area.
