Rezek House, a Lutheran Social Service Metro Homeless Youth Program, is a
transitional living center for homeless teens and their
children in our Saint Paul community. The program offers case
management support as well as classes in life skills as the youth work
to become independent, productive members of our community.
LSS Rezek House provides a safe haven, supervision and important life skills training for homeless youth ages 16 to 21. Because homeless kids are not just homeless, but also lack families and mentors who can teach them how to access community resources, supporting congregations play a key role in helping them develop.
Gloria Dei is proud to serve as a supporting congregation of Rezek House, assisting the youth who
live and learn there. The
primary support provided by our congregation to these youth comes at Christmas time. Gloria Dei receives the Christmas wish lists
for 10-15 youth and their children. Through the generosity of our congregation the
holiday season is brightened for these deserving young people in our community as we purchase appropriate and desired gifts for them. You can participate by picking up a gift tag on Gloria Dei's Giving Tree at Christmas time.
