To the YouthCARE community,
We are reaching out to share some very difficult news; YouthCARE has ceased operations effective Friday, October 4, 2019. This difficult decision was made following a vote by our Board of Directors and with the support of our staff. YouthCARE has been working to overcome some financial setbacks, but unfortunately, we have reached a position where we do not have the revenue needed to continue our operations.
On behalf of the staff and the Board of Directors, we thank you for your support of YouthCARE over the years. Our community has helped us through so much, both good times and bad, and we are so grateful for the many committed and passionate individuals who have helped us deliver against our mission of serving multicultural youth in Minneapolis and St. Paul. We are very proud of the work that we’ve done, all of which was made possible through your generous donations of time, energy and financial support.
We are trying to spread this news within our community and apologize if this feels abrupt. We recognize that this is disappointing to the youth we serve, their families and community, as well as our own. This decision was made after much deliberation and exploration of other options, and it is with a heavy heart that we send out this communication.
With appreciation and gratitude,
The YouthCARE Board of Directors
