Evergreen Youth & Family Services, Inc. receives grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless


Bemidji, Minnesota – June 25th, 2019 – Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless has granted the Evergreen Youth & Family Services, Inc. (EYFS) with $3,000 to meet the eductional needs of youth experiencing homelessness.

Funding from Open Your Heart will provide EYFS with essential school supplies and tools. Evergreen Youth & Family Services is a community-based organization committed to strengthening youth and preserving families with an emphasis on those living in Northern Minnesota. With new school supplies and tools, EYFS can remove barriers that prevent homeless and at-risk youth from feeling like they belong in school.

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.

Education Grants are awarded annually in the spring and are considered only through the application process. Applications can be obtained at
