November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, an opportunity for organizations and individuals around the country to spread the word about youth homelessness. To amplify discussions about the challenges young people experiencing homelessness face, and to enrich dialogue about how we can support them, The Homestretch team is championing 3 initiatives that will help spread the word.
