Who We Serve?
We serve Unaccompanied Young Adults (Aged 18-25), including those who aged out of Foster Care, the most under-served segment of the homeless community.
In 2016-2017 school year were 1,355,821 homeless children/youth enrolled in Public Schools in US,
75,106 in the State of Florida.
At Risk To Become Homeless
We partner with different organizations to prevent and eradicate homelessness in Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas County. Prevention, through community initiatives and the School System is key to create awareness, identify, and assist young people at risk to become homeless.
We provide services to displaced students. In 2017-2018 we helped hundreds of displaced families moving from Puerto Rico to Florida due to the Hurricane Maria. Over 300,000 Puerto Rico’s residents have moved to Florida after the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in September 2017.
