Give Out Day Arise Project

I’m fundraising for Arise Project on Give OUT Day because…

4,000 youth are homeless on any given night in Minnesota. Nearly 20% identify as LGBTQ and there are only 90 beds available. Without you we can’t meet their urgent needs.

It’s an opportunity for me and my peers to utilize our resources to make a difference in the lives Twin Cities homeless youth. It’s a day I can commit to focusing outside my everyday life, and bring attention to an issue that is so often taken for granted.

no one should have to spend a night on the street because of who they are and the Arise Project funds programs that address the needs of homeless LGBTQ youth and helps provide them safe and stable housing.

my heart breaks to think of any teen being kicked out of their home, especially if it is the result of being honest about who they are or who they love.

Rita Joyce

I strongly believe every youth should have an opportunity to succeed. And that starts with a safe place to stay every night.

Stephanie Moores

life for LGBTQ youth can be hard enough, but with just a little effort we can make sure that every head has a bed.

Joe Rayburn

no one should be punished (homeless) for being who they are – especially our young people.

Marty Shimko

there are too many young people without homes, but together we can make sure every youth’s head has a bed.

supporting the LGBTQ community is something close to my heart as well as being able to impact the lives of children in the Twin Cities in any way I can.

no youth should ever be homeless and we have a responsibility to help our community.

everyone in the Twin Cities, whether you’re straight, gay, transgender, bisexual or questioning, needs to support youth who are struggling. They need individuals who can love and accept them for who they are instead of being forced out of the homes and disconnected from their families due to their sexuality. The statistic that over 30% of homeless youth in the Twin Cities identify as LGBTQ shocked me — this issue is real.

on an average night in Minneapolis, there are approximately 4,000 homeless youth and young adults. It is reported that 40% of these fall into the LGBTQ spectrum. One homeless youth is too many. Join me in our fight to end homelessness.
