Every night there are approximately 150 homeless youth sleeping outside, in cars, porta-pottys or couch-hopping with friends in the St. Cloud area. Pathways 4 Youth provides youth experiencing homelessness with the opportunity to learn about and gain access to resources that can put them back on a path that will help them to grow as individuals and be contributing members of our community. Pathways 4 Youth started as a St. Cloud Area Rotary initiative and is a partnership project with HOPE 4 Youth, a nonprofit that provides pathways to end youth homelessness in the north metro suburbs of the Twin Cities.
We focus on four key areas
Connect youth to the resources they need to find and maintain housing (shelter, permanent, affordable, transitional, etc.).
Meet youth where they are in the community and provide them with assistance in real-time and on their terms.
Partner with community providers and resources to connect youth to prevention services.
Assist youth with finding a career pathways and the education and employment opportunities to move forward.
