Ain Dah Yung Center’s Minosidoon Campaign Has Launched

In November 2019, the Ain Dah Yung Center opened the doors of Mino Oski Ain Dah Yung, a new 42-unit permanent supportive housing complex for American Indian youth ages 18 to 24 experiencing homelessness in St. Paul. In the year that followed, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest, 48 young adults were taken off the streets and put into efficiency apartments with a full-suite of culturally responsive on-site services.  This is just the latest iteration of ADYC’s 37-year mission to provide a healing place in the community for American Indian youth and families to thrive in safety and wholeness.

From Emergency Shelter to Family Services to our new Zhawenimaa Safe Harbor program, ADYC continues to emerge as a national leader in offering culturally responsive programming for American Indian youth and families in Minnesota.

Throughout 2020 and 2021, Ain Dah Yung Center is gearing up for our Minosidoon Campaign. Meaning “Put in a Good Place” in Ojibwe, the goal of the Minosidoon Campaign is to build ADYC’s capacity to sustain our mission across all of our seven programs well into the future.
