Student Profile: Maria Cruz
Augsburg senior Maria Cruz knows a thing or two about homelessness, having moved around the Minneapolis area with her siblings but often finding themselves without a place to live. When the double major in political science and international relations was approached by her advisor about a community service opportunity, Cruz knew she wanted to tackle homeless among women. “As I looked into the resources available, there didn’t seem to be many for this community,” she said. “There were resources for kids but I knew if we supported the women it would help the whole family.” Read more about Maria and her project.
