Addiction and help in the inner city (Minneapolis)

Hello, I am a 56 year old Grandma who is heartbroken at how drugs are hurting our city and especially in certain areas. I am looking for other volunteers that can help me reach out to these people in a safe manner and just let them know they have options. I think alot of them have given up and they are very young. It is sad to me and I want to try and make a difference. Today I went and picked up garbage around Bloomington Avenue for a couple hours and just said "hi" to people. Some of the addicts in the area at least picked up some garbage when they saw me caring about things.

I want to help them see another way. But alone I am too vulnerable. I need some others to work together.
