The June UUCM Social Generosity Offering will go to Avenues for Youth.
Avenues for Youth, located in the heart of Minneapolis, supports 16-24 year olds by providing a place to live, be it short or long term. Through education, support, health and stable housing, they empower youth to move to more stable lives.
Last year, 86% of youth Avenues supported identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Color. Racial, social and economic disparities are leading causes for the 6,000 youth that experience homelessness in Minnesota. Watch this video and visit www.Avenuesforyouth.org to learn more.
