Pathways 4 Youth foundation for the homeless is a local program working to end youth homelessness.

Every night there are about 100 homeless youth sleeping outside, in cars, or
couch-hopping with friends in the St. Cloud area.

Pathways 4 Youth is a youth experience for the homeless on a path to grow and become contributing members of the community. This organization decided to make the commitment to find a way to reduce or end youth homelessness in the St. Cloud area. Their goal is to create a world in which the youth will feel safe, valued, and supported while reaching their full potential.

In May 2018, they opened their first youth resource center located 203 Cooper Ave. N, Suite 260.

In April 2019, Pathways had an agreement with Catholic Charities for staffing and other support.
