National Homeless Youth Awareness Month

Did you know that the month of November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month?
When you think of a homeless child, what do you think of?
Do you have an image in your mind?
Good. Now watch this slide show, to see the faces of homeless children from all over the USA.

There are basically two types of homeless youth in the USA. There are children who are homeless because their parents are homeless; and there are unaccompanied homeless youth, who have either run away from or been thrown out of their homes.
This month, we will be hearing more about their plight, and how we can help homeless kids have a better chance in life.
Stay tuned!

I did not know it was National Homeless Youth Awareness Month. Wow, you think about the homeless but I think you sometimes forget about the kids too you know? Definately food for thought.
