Were you ever in foster care?
If you are currently or were in foster care or a group home after you were 16, here's a list of Hennepin County Youth Resource Tips. The county will help you find a job and give you job training; and will seek out health insurance, medical care, and basic needs like food/shelter for you. They will also help you get your GED and explore higher education.
