We rent to tenants that other landlords turn down because of low income or poor rental and criminal histories. Without stable housing  individuals are unable to hold down a job or get children to school every day. We provide support and flexibility so tenants can maintain housing. Many of our tenants are low wage and seasonal workers – essential to our economy but leaving them with insufficient income to afford market rent apartments.

Avenues for Homeless Youth

Avenues partners with youth experiencing homelessness to achieve their dreams.

For 25 years, Avenues has supported youth ages 16-24 in Hennepin County. Whether a young person needs someplace to stay for just one night, or a year and a half, Avenues empowers youth to find their path out of homelessness. We do that by providing a stable home, building trusting relationships, and navigating the youth’s education, career, health and wellness and housing goals.

At Avenues, we believe:

  • Homelessness does not define a person. It is just one part of a journey that we are here to help young people navigate.
  • All youth experiencing homelessness have or are experiencing trauma. Therefore, mental health is at the center of all our work.
  • There is no one reason why youth experience homelessness – it’s intersectional. Systems of oppression, racism and poverty are of the root causes of homelessness. Without addressing these systems, homelessness will persist.
  • Youth are resilient, inspiring, and the drivers of their own journey. With stability, trust and youth-centered supports, their dreams can become reality.

Avenues work is guided by the 9 Evidence-based, Guiding Principles to Help Youth Overcome Homeless and our core values: equity, community, respect and dignity, trust, liberation and anti-oppression.
