MNCREW selects a charity every two years to be the recipient of our members’ collective philanthropic efforts.

Our current charity partner is The Link, a local nonprofit that works with youth and families to overcome the impacts of poverty and social injustice.

The Link strengthens and transforms lives through education, advocacy, housing and a dynamic network of social services.

The organization supports nearly 3,000 youth and young families each year through programming in three areas:
  • Housing & Supportive Services Division: housing and supportive services for youth and young families experiencing homelessness
  • Juvenile Justice Division: positive alternative programs for youth in the juvenile justice
  • Safe Harbor Division: emergency shelter, housing and supportive services for youth who have been sexually exploited
