We find them. They find hope.
These are our most vulnerable. Who live on our streets. Who camp in our foothills. Who have nowhere else to go.
So we go to them. We bring them food and clothing. Check on their safety. And gain their trust, so eventually, they come to us.
At first, it might just be to guide them to a shower, find a location to do laundry, or get some food at our Homeless Youth Resource Center. But once we build a relationship, we can do more than meet their basic needs. We can assist them with getting identification. Help them complete their education. Seek employment. Find housing. And get them the mental health and addiction counseling they need. The support we provide can open the door to self-sufficiency and happiness.
