Life House, an organization that offers comprehensive services for homeless and street youth in the Twin Ports, has purchased a new building adjacent to its current location in downtown Duluth. Formerly Cooper's Engraving, the building is located at 21 N. 1st Avenue West.
Executive Director, Maude Dornfeld, says this expansion will serve as the new home for Life House's Legitimate Hustle Program. The job skills program gives youth an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship and small business while creating and running a social enterprise.
Dornfeld says, "By expanding the employment program we will have more space to teach more youth skills to help them succeed."
Life House has been providing services in the Duluth area since 1991. The non-profit works to reconnect homeless and street youth to their dreams through the drop-in youth center, mental health and wellness program, over 40 units of housing, and the Futures education and employment program.
