You can help support law and system changes with us and our wider Youth Services Network (YSN) partners!

Thank you to the youth, community partners, and legislators who showed up at the Minnesota State Capitol to advocate for critical investments in youth and families! With your support, The Link and our partners at the Youth Services Network (YSN) were successful in increasing funding for youth experiencing homelessness and/or sexual exploitation. Join us in celebrating these historic wins:

  • Homeless Youth Act annual funding increased from $11M to $41.5M!
  • Safe Harbor funding increases of more than $6M.
  • Emergency Shelter capital investment of $100M to enhance and create shelter spaces across Minnesota.
  • Plus increases to Emergency Services Program, Homeless Management Information System, Transitional Housing, and more!

With these investments, The Link and our partners can make meaningful strides toward reducing and ending youth homelessness and sexual exploitation in Minnesota.
