AGENDA

Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,

On February 1, 2018 the Hawthorne Huddle will be discussing the 100 Day Challenge. Hennepin County was one of five communities nationwide chosen to participate in a 100 Day Challenge to combat youth homelessness. Hennepin County’s goal was in 100 days, 150 youth, aged 16-24, would exit homelessness into safe and stable housing, of which 75 percent would be employed.

Hennepin County saw amazing results through this initiative in a very short timeframe. When we collaborate and work across sectors, our results are incredibly impactful.  This presentation will cover 100 Day methodology, lessons learned and opportunities for sustainability.

The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Farview Park, 621 29th Avenue North. A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m.

WELCOME: Ann DeGroot, Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board; Diana Hawkins, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council

INTRODUCTIONS: Please share your name and organization so others can network with you after the meeting.
