MoveFwd Suburban Host Home Program
If you are a young person seeking housing:
The Suburban Host Home Program is a cooperative effort between MoveFwd and Avenues for Homeless Youth. We understand that you may want to stay in your school or work area. We will try to help you locate a host home in your community so you can keep in touch with your friends, stay in school and commute to your job.
Contact MoveFwd to explore the possibilities.
If you live in the western suburbs and are interested in hosting a young person:
The Suburban Host Home Program, in partnership with Avenues for Homeless Youth, provides supported transitional housing arrangements in volunteer host homes. It’s a community initiative involving local schools, faith communities, local government, service providers and the greater suburban Hennepin County community.
The mission of the program is to address the housing needs of youth experiencing homelessness by connecting them with caring adults from their own communities who are willing to provide safe housing and support. The goals of the program are to:
- Provide safe and supportive housing to suburban youth experiencing homelessness by building upon the capacity and caring that exists within the suburban community.
- Expand awareness across the suburban community of the lives of young people experiencing homelessness.
