Organization Information

Mission Statement

To provide support to hungry and homeless people in Minnesota through financial grants to nonprofit agencies or organizations for direct support services, capital improvements, educational resources for children, and/or systemic efforts to end hunger and homelessness in Minnesota.

Description

Open Your Heart provides support to homeless shelters, food shelves, and domestic violence shelters throughout the State of Minnesota. Our primary goal is to ensure that front-line providers of crisis services have the tools, equipment, and infrastructure they need to carry out their work.

We give out two different types of grants to MN-based organizations. One is our Hunger and Homeless grant that is geared towards hunger relief programs and emergency shelters, which aims to assist agencies in improving and expanding their facilities to better serve hungry and homeless individuals, such as funding for refrigerators, repairing or replacement of water heaters or other essential equipment, shelter beds, security systems, renovations and construction to meet building codes. Our second grant is our Education grant, which supports the educational needs of children and youth who are experiencing homelessness, providing emergency shelters, schools, etc. with funding for backpacks, computers, classes to obtain their GED, school fees, sports fees, etc.
