Local group gets $7.5M to help youth in need

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local faith-based nonprofit organization is getting $7.5 million from the federal government to help young people living in areas of high poverty and crime to find work and lead better lives.

For years, Metro United Methodist Urban Ministry has been committed to empowering those in need.

Metro will use the millions in grants from the U.S. Department of Labor to make a positive difference in our community.

"We're going to help over 350 young people in San Diego alone. That's just a great impact. There's a greater need, so we're going to need the help from local supporters to help us reach more people," Metro United CEO Rev. John Hughes said.
