It got $145,000 dollars from the Otto- Bremer Foundation. The money will be used for a traditional housing program.

Fraser opens a community center everyday for homeless people 14 to 22 years old to help them get a job and learn to live on their own.

“At ten o'clock we close our doors and that's a very harsh reality. When you're closing your doors and you have folks here it became very apparent that we had to offer some kind of sheltering option for these folks.”

Johnson calls the young homeless population an invisible group and says we need to know there are many of them here in Fargo.
