Duluth's Life House gets $254,000 grant to help homeless youths

Life House received a $254,000 grant to expand their services for homeless youth in Duluth.

Minnesota Department of Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson announced the grant at a Life House news conference Monday.

The MDHS grant was provided for Life House to increase its amenities for homeless youth, which includes a drop-in center allowing youth access to food, shelter, mental health counseling, crisis intervention, job training and more.

This grant is part of a $4.2 million deal made by Gov. Mark Dayton and the Minnesota Legislature last session to create extra capacity to assist the state's homeless youth.
