YOUNG PEOPLE MATTER (YPM)
A place of hope and healing for youth and their families
“Many of us assume that homeless teens are on the street on their own volition, or because of some bad decision making. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Every shelter I’ve visited, every kid I’ve spoken with, they all have one thing in common: it’s not their fault. They simply don’t have a support structure at home and have no other choice.”
Tellman Knudson--who in 2009 ran barefoot Across America for homeless youth.
