Engaging Today with the Leaders of Tomorrow.

We welcome the opportunity to engage with and educate students of all ages on the topic of homelessness in our community. By providing the students of today with an opportunity to better understand the root causes of homelessness, we are beginning a dialogue on how to end homelessness with tomorrow’s leaders.
