TonkaTogether, a fundraising project of the Excelsior Morning Rotary Club, is raising needed funds for 180 Degrees and five other non-profits in the Twin Cities southwest metro suburbs. All non-profits provide basic needs services in the community, services which are in greater demand during Covid-19.
"We're grateful for the support of the Excelsior Morning Rotary Club and all the people in the community who are lending support, said 180 Degrees' CEO Dan Pfarr. "No organization can solve youth homelessness alone and so we appreciate the community coming together when we truly need support."
180 Degrees operates Hope House, a emergency shelter for youth, ages 14-19 who are homeless, and Lanewood House, fully furnished affordable apartments for young adults 18-22 who are at risk of homelessness. Waiting lists persist at both Hope House and Lanewood House during Covid-19, indicating the ongoing need for safe shelter and programming.
