Meeting Held to Discuss Youth Homelessness

The Start Early Funders Coalition and other groups hosted a gathering to raise awareness of the challenges that homeless children and their families face in Minnesota.

Lynn Haglin, Vice President and Kids Plus Director with the Northland Foundation spoke about young children.

“They need stable housing, they need routine, they need stimulation for their healthy development.” she said.

The event featured presentations from academics, policy makers, and service providers.

Organizers say they hope to continue pushing the state forward in solving the problem of homelessness for youth.
