Avenues for Youth

Minneapolis, Minnesota
“Avenues for Youth works with more than 300 young people experiencing homelessness every year. We provide young people a home, meals, and a variety of important supports, including an on-site health and wellness team. We are excited to go solar because it is great for the environment and because every penny we save on electricity can be used to provide more support to young people.”
-Katherine Meerse, Executive Director of Avenues for Youth
