With a $3,000 grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless, Evergreen Youth & Family Services, Inc. can provide more resources and school necessities for homeless students.


Bemidji, Minnesota – June 25th, 2018 – Each year Open Your Heart supports more than 200 homeless shelters and food shelves like Evergreen Youth & Family Services, Inc. throughout urban, suburban, and rural Minnesota.

Open Your Heart looks for gaps in funding of services based on geographic or demographic considerations and reaches out to agencies serving those communities. They support programs in communities where many traditional funders do not reach – volunteer run domestic violence shelters, homeless programs in sparsely served remote corners of the state, inner city programs dedicated to serving the poorest among us, and hunger programs serving clientele with special needs. Their primary goal is to ensure that front line providers of crisis services have the tools, equipment, and infrastructure necessary to carry out their work.

Funding from Open Your Heart will provide Evergreen Youth & Family Services, Inc. with new school supplies, backpacks, gym shoes, clothing, and funding for activity and transportation costs. Evergreen YFS is a community-based organization committed to strengthening youth and preserving families with an emphasis on those living in Northern Minnesota. Evergreen Youth Services site is home to their Mental Health Counseling, Independent Living Skills, Youth Drop-in Center, Street Outreach Program, Crime Victim Services, Youth at Work, and Safe Harbor and Youth Advisory Commission. With new school supplies, backpacks, and clothing items, Evergreen YFS will be able to provide resources to more homeless students throughout Bemidji.
