We’re not sending you a holiday card this year and here is why….
On any given night in Grand Rapids, there are youth with no safe place to go and no stability. They’re forced to make decisions that allow them to survive tonight rather than thrive tomorrow.
Ervine’s Auto Repair and Grand Rapids Hybrid are committed to ensuring that these youth know the community cares about them. For the holiday season, we are preparing stockings for as many members as we can (175 is our goal) and we need your help to make this possible.
What is HQ?
HQ is a Grand Rapids drop-in center for youth ages 14 thru 24 who are experiencing unsafe or unstable housing.
HQ was created to help young people find a place to rest, obtain resources and connections, and receive support thru professional skill building. HQ exists as a transformative space where everyone is included and diversity is celebrated.
Services offered at HQ: meals, showers, laundry, basic need items and clothing, employment & educational services, housing crisis support, computer lab available for online school courses, homework, job searches & resume development, art projects and networking.
