The Link's mission is to build a supportive community that links youth and their families to their inner strength through life skills, education, advocacy, permanent and transitional supportive housing, and a dynamic network of social services to transform lives.

Help youth in The Link's scattered site housing programs by providing items they need to move in to their new apartments. Items needed include: air mattresses, sheets, towels, shower curtains, bathroom rugs, toilet paper, plates, cups, pots, pans, baking sheets, silverware, microwaves, paper towels, mops, brooms, buckets and other cleaning supplies.

We are happy to announce that our new Passageways Emergency Shelter and Housing Program is open.

The emergency shelter has six bedrooms for youth who have been sexually exploited and are between the ages of 13 and 17. The youth can be any gender identity. For a referral to the emergency shelter please contact the Passageways main phone number at 952-288-2688.





I am a 17 year old transgender youth. I am much more successful living on my own than with my mom, even though we still have a good relationship. I was staying in a youth shelter before I came to live here, at Lindquist.
