Open Your Heart is happy to announce that we have received a $75,000 grant award from the Otto Bremer Foundation. This grant will be used to strengthen our efforts to bring much needed grants to homeless shelters in Greater Minnesota.
Open Your Heart makes a special effort to ensure that small, largely volunteer run organizations can access the resources they need. Often located in areas of great need, but few resources, homeless shelters are a lifesaver for those displaced or fleeing from domestic violence. Many agencies have no professional fundraising staff and funding opportunities for basic needs services in rural communities is sorely lacking.
The Otto Bremer Foundation and Open Your Heart share a commitment to ensuring that homelessness in urban and rural areas across the state have access to safe and supportive shelter and services, knowing that without it, escaping a homeless life is much harder. We greatly value our partnership with the great people at the Otto Bremer Foundation!
