We Value Compassion
In both 2016 and 2017 over forty-five 18 - 24 year olds from Eden Prairie and Chanhassen who identified themselves as Head of Households reached out to PROP (Eden Prairie's Food Shelf) for services. All were identified as homeless or precariously housed.
There are teens and young adults in our community who don’t have a safe place to sleep at night. The stories of how this came to be their reality vary, but the result is the same - they don’t have a safe place to sleep at night.They try to make themselves invisible.The need for affordable housing in Eden Prairie is great, especially for young people who wish to remain in the community but have little or no financial support.
We want to see them and care for them. We can have the greatest impact now by focusing on young adults between the ages of 18 and 22.
