HOPE 4 Youth is a local organization helping young people who are homeless by meeting their basic needs with hot meals, showers, education resources, and other tools they need to thrive. It’s helping students in Anoka County, right in our own backyards. And it’s helping people like Trinity, a young woman who experienced homelessness right here in our community.
Through Eagle Brook's 2014 compassion, giving, and serving initiative―The Micah Project―our goal is to raise $400,000 for local and global partners, including HOPE 4 Youth, who are making a difference where they are. One hundred percent of the donations will be distributed to one of 22 nonprofit organizations―in our local neighborhoods and across the globe.

HOPE 4 Youth wants all youth to feel safe, valued, and supported while reaching their full potential. This begins with meeting their basic needs and leads to giving them the tools to thrive.
Anoka Hennepin School District 11 identified 721 students experiencing homelessness in the 2012-13 school year, up from 581 during the 2011-12 school year. Approximately 155 of these students were identified as unaccompanied. H4Y is the first Drop-in Center for youth experiencing homelessness in the Twin Cities Northwest Metro area. It is a one stop support and referral center within walking distance of the light rail transit and downtown Anoka. Help create a circle of support around our young people today with your gift!
