Youth homelessness is an invisible issue in our community. It looks different than you think it does. This year, more than 3,000 youth will experience homelessness locally. Another 4,000+ are imminently at risk of becoming homeless within 2 weeks. The Youth Homelessness Response Fund was established as part of the #CbusSeeUs awareness campaign, and the fund will provide grants to local non-profits who directly help homeless youth every day.
We are challenging the community to see our youth – our most vulnerable population – in hopes the Columbus can lift them up. It isn’t The Columbus Way. It is the only way.
Please join us and help put an end to youth homelessness.
