Youth Homelessness Project
The Youth Homeless Project at the Church of St Gerard commits, in accordance with Catholic social teaching and our parish mission, to understand and address the issue of youth homelessness in the NW suburbs by. . .
- Educating parishioners about the real, on-going issue of youth homelessness in our community and the impact this issue has on our community members.
- Encouraging engagement in action that works to solve immediate needs of homeless youth and advocates for solutions to end youth homelessness in our area.
- Working with all generations of parishioners to make an impact on solving youth homelessness.
This effort began in the Fall of 2013 and seeks interested parishioners who would like to help with committee efforts, as host home families or as helping hands for related service activities.
If you have any questions contact Anne Tiller in the parish office at email@example.com or call 763-424-8770 at Ext. 120.
