Mission Statement

The mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness throughout the United States.

We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives.

Description

Homelessness is not just an adult problem. Teen homelessness rates are on the rise. Our concern is that homeless kids are the most likely target of human traffickers, pornographers and gangs. These vulnerable kids are forced to endure unimaginable horrors, just to survive. Our main focus is on prevention; providing an array of resources and services to help homeless youth on their journey to self-sufficient adulthood. Our goal: Change the notion that youth are on the streets because they want to be!
