$20,000 Goal

Help us meet our MATCH of $20,000 and DOUBLE the number of young people we can employ.

Every day, there are approximately 6,000 youth ages 16-24 in Minnesota who experience homelessness.

Wildflyer Coffee is a Minnesota-based specialty coffee company dedicated to compassionate service and an emphasis on dignified employment opportunities for young people experiencing homelessness throughout the Twin Cities.

We make coffee to empower. To build community and independence so youth can spread their wings.

The youth we see in our employment program are resilient and motivated. They attend school in Minneapolis while trying to find housing and even walk or bike to their shifts from miles outside the city. They are determined...and we show them that same dedication.

Youth report the most significant barrier they face when coming out of homelessness is a lack of stable employment. At Wildflyer Coffee, we offer employment training and other resources—like housing referrals, mental health support, and education coaching—to help them meet their basic needs and help them live a stable and fulfilling life. COVID-19 dramatically altered an already challenging reality for youth experiencing homelessness, and they are facing higher barriers than ever before. We are working hard to increase program capacity and create employment for those who need it most. 

Join us today to DOUBLE down on youth homelessness, and give them a safe place to call home.
