Together, we break barriers with youth.

Your gifts of dollars, time and in-kind donations make our mission possible. With our community’s support, over 300 youth will have access to shelter, housing and supportive services at Avenues this year. The statistics of youth homelessness in Minnesota are staggering – and our community is making a difference! Whether you volunteer at our shelters, donate monthly, or hold a sock collection drive at your work, YOU make our work possible.

Ways To Impact


Your dollars provide food and shelter, relationships with trusted adults, mental health therapy and so much more.


Whether you do yard work at our shelters or tutor a young person studying for the GED, our volunteers make an impact.

In-Kind Support

You make it possible to provide all basic for our young people - hygiene products, school supplies and more.

Host A Youth

By host a youth experiencing homelessness, you build community and supports for young people.
