LSS Together for Youth

What pronouns to you prefer?

If you're a person of a certain age, you've probably never even considered that question.

And maybe that's part of the problem.

But there is a group in town that's serving as social support for young people who fall outside the "binary" classifications; young people who, as Kathy Hermes puts it, "dash from one safe space to the next," and they're offering us some of the best gifts of all if we can open our minds and hearts to receive them.

Every year, Lutheran Social Services (LSS) in Duluth helps over 600 homeless youth in our community.  They provide a gamut of services, from a teen clinic and a runaway program, to transitional housing and street outreach - even help for kids about to age out of the system.

But those services are located throughout the city and aren't always easy to get to.  So LSS has announced plans to build the Center for Changing Lives, one central location in Duluth where homeless kids can find all the help and services they need under one roof.
