A homeless street kid rest on the pavement next to a toy house he built to remind him of his dream.
This month is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month!   What can we continue to do to respond to the homeless crisis among our youth and young adults this season. Here are some ways:

Awareness: Educate others about the seriousness of youth homelessness in our community.

Advocacy: Participate in public policy efforts and opportunities to increase resources and funding for homeless youth.

Attention: Get involved and support local programs in our community already housing and serving homeless youth.
