BROOKLYN AVENUES 


Brooklyn Avenues for Homeless Youth is a 12-bed shelter and transitional housing program for homeless youth located in Brooklyn Park.  Youth ages 16-20 who are experiencing homelessness in the NW suburbs of Hennepin Cty are eligible to receive support from Brooklyn Avenues.  Usually the average stay will be 3-4 months, although some will stay shorter and others will stay longer.  The maximum stay is 18 months or age 21, whichever comes first.
 
Prince of Peace is connected in a few different ways like putting on a monthly birthday celebration, helping with an onsite garden and collecting supplies (click here for the list) to provide for the youth that are living there. 

Right now we are collecting full size shampoo and conditioner to donate.  Put those supplies in the "tree-house" near the kitchen.

Thanks!

WELCOME TO PRINCE OF PEACE


Welcome To Prince of Peace!

 Check out our   welcome video! This professionally produced video will give visitors to our website a glimpse of what we are all about at Prince of Peace. The video can also serve as a fantastic way to invite others to Prince of Peace. We bet that you know at least three people who are not active members in a local congregation. Take a moment and send them a quick email with the link to this video. We also encourage you to share the video on your own Facebook page. It is an easy and effective way to let folks know about the wonderful outreach and ministry happening at your church and to let them know that they are invited!
