What do you know about Kids who have no place to call home?
One in every 30 children in the U.S experiences homelessness. On any given night, there are 2,500 young people experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. There are children, youth and families without stable housing in every community in Minnesota urban, rural and, yes, our north east metro suburbs.
Why are so many kids experiencing homelessness? How does being homeless affect their education? Who is working to help kids without homes? What can community members do to help? A Public Forum on Youth Homelessness will be held on Monday, April 6, at 7 PM, at the Roseville Library community room.
Our panelists from Avenues for Homes, Face2Face, Lutheran Social Services and Catholic Charities Hope Street program will discuss host home programs and housing needs for the metro area, health care needs of youth living on the edge, and services for youth. There will be time for questions, and suggestions for community involvement.
The Forum is free and open to the public. If you have any questions, you can Email them here.
