Connecting the Dots

Walking with Youth from Crisis to Housed

Connecting the Dots: Walking with Youth from Crisis to Housed is an exclusive evening of inspiration, food + fun, and an opportunity to engage, as we share about the innovative collaboration between HQ and 3:11 Youth Housing. Both our organizations play a role in serving youth experiencing homelessness or unsafe housing in Kent County. Together, HQ and 3:11 are modeling the power of intentional collaboration, highlighting how organizations can create a greater impact by working together and sharing resources. We believe when organizations intentionally partner to provide a continuum of services, youth are able to overcome crisis sooner and our Grand Rapids community is stronger for it.
