"Right now, the largest growing population of homeless in Minnesota is youth," AG Huot, Central Minnesota Continuum of Care coordinator said. "We are going to have an increase in strategies to reduce it." Huot said this population consists of anyone under age 25 who does not have a permanent place to live. Many originate from the foster care system, she said, aging out from state care without having established a permanent connection with a family. BrainerdDispatch.com Illustration
