Facing the challenges of quality foster homes for at-risk youth, Friends of Youth is clear proof that ordinary people can come together to create something extraordinary.

Facing Homelessness

Started in 2010, Facing Homelessness believes that we can and will end homelessness when we invite community to be a part of the solution. There is power in humanizing homelessness because it allows all of us to see the beauty of each person rather than fixating on the complexity of an issue that overwhelms us.
