HOPE 4 Youth helps 16 to 24-year-olds who are experiencing homelessness in the northern metro area — some of the least visible and most vulnerable people who are without a place to stay. 

Over the course of a year, it's estimated a staggering 13,300 youth in Minnesota experience homelessness. Each night in Minnesota more than 6,000 youth will experience homelessness, including during the dangerously cold winter months. These young people search for places to stay warm and safe. Those with connections couch-hop or go to shelters, but many sleep in their cars, on public transportation, or even outside.

The HOPE 4 Youth Drop-In Center in Anoka is the hub for many of our services. It is a safe, non-judgmental place for all youth who are in need. No appointment is necessary to visit for a hot meal, to get clothing or hygiene items, or to use the shower or laundry facilities. Case managers at the center connect young people to stable housing, health and wellness programs, education and employment opportunities, and more. 

Our Host Homes program supports situations where a family friend, relative, or neighbor allows a young person to stay at their place to avoid being homeless. This program turns these couch-hopping situations into more structured agreements that are beneficial to the hosts and the young people who are living with them. 

HOPE Place is our 12-unit transitional housing facility in Coon Rapids that offers supportive services to 18- to 24-year-olds who are experiencing homelessness. HOPE Place staff and community partners provide on-site case management, including education and employment guidance, aimed at promoting self-sufficiency and long-term success
