Surprisingly enough 1 out of 3 homeless people are teens under the age of 18. That’s quite a jaw dropper! No matter what their reason these are teens, no kids, that are out on the street and they need help. I never would have thought that teens would be living out on the streets and have no where to go. Some are out by themselves, no parents or adult figures around. They are simply wandering the streets living day to day, hand to hand. This is terrible to think about and even worse if you are the one going through it.
What you need to do is educate yourself so you can start educating others about teen homelessness. Contact local homeless shelters and find out what you can do to help with the teens there. There was a big Teens for Jeans program that helped to get jeans for homeless teens. Anything helps. You can start gathering any items for teens and work with the local shelters and churches to get them to those who really need it. I just find it horrible to think about how many teens are actually on the street right now. This is a great site to find out what you can do to help with the teen homelessness. Don’t just sit, get active and get helping!!
