Homeless youth are sometimes “invisible” because you don’t always see them on the streets. They often sleep on couches of friends and family members, but still suffer from the same issues that go along with not having a place to call home. This design helps raise awareness of the staggering number of homeless teens left surfing the streets in search of a place to sleep.
This design, created by Encarna Dorado, was created to get people to take action for these teens. More can and should be done to help these young people find resources, shelter, and transitional housing, with the ultimate goal of achieving independence and stability. With help, they can overcome their situation and succeed.
