Alleviating hunger and homelessness in Minnesota


2020 certainly proved to be a challenging year, but with support from KARMAKARMA, OYH was able to improve facilities, ensuring safe and dignified environments for 44 homeless shelters and supportive living centers across Minnesota. The Education Fund helped 12 charities for school and education secure supplies and winter clothing, pay for activity fees and much more so that children and youth experiencing homelessness could participate fully in school and have the same necessities as other students. The OYH Homeless Student Scholarship program provided one-year scholarships to 13 eligible students attending the Minneapolis Community and Technical College. OYH’s Summer Challenge made it possible for 171 Minnesota food shelves to restock and distribute fresh and frozen foods at a time when food shelf donations are traditionally low.
