There are nearly 120 youth people who are homeless on any given night in Duluth and Lutheran Social Service (LSS) of Minnesota wants to put an end to this.

Tuesday, they had a ribbon cutting celebration for a new facility that will house a four bed shelter to serve youths no matter the time of day.

“We’re going to be able to support kids 18 through 24 in a safe warm place at night so they are not out on the streets and they’re doing good things and they’re finding good service and connecting to good people,” said Jan Amys, LSS Duluth Advisory Council Member.

Youths will work with counselors to develop a plan for stable housing and goals to successful independence.
