I'm wondering if this is being done by the same folks who wanted to build the same type of place in Brooklyn Park over on Broadway next door to the Brooklyn Park Evangelical Free Church. But was stopped when the folks in the area found out that those homeless youths were from places like the juvie in Lino Lakes.

These churches need to mind their own business! Their is no reason 'youth' should need their own apartment. Let the parishioners take them in if they think they can do better than Social Services.
We have the Lutherans and Catholics to thank for the Somalis and Illegals.
