Heart and Soles4Souls is more than a program – it’s a commitment to change

We’re launching Heart and Soles4Souls, a transformative movement dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the 7,000 children experiencing homelessness in the Twin Cities. In collaboration with Soles4Souls, a global non-profit, Heart and Soles4Souls seeks to provide new shoes to these kids in need in the Twin Cities, offering not only a basic necessity but also hope and opportunity.

In Minnesota, households with children experiencing homelessness grew by 27% from January 2022 to 2023*. Together, we can stride towards a future where every child takes confident steps towards success. We invite you to be a part of the solution by participating in our kick-off event.

Event Details

This event will bring attention to the daily challenges these children face and offer a tangible and accessible solution. Your support is an investment in the future of these children, offering them a chance for a brighter tomorrow. Let’s step into the night with compassion, unity, and a shared purpose to make a lasting impact on the young hearts and souls of our community.
