BENEFITING: Young People Matter
EVENT DATE: Jun 07, 2014
Young People Matter (YPM), a nonprofit organization which runs an emergency youth shelter in Atlanta proposes the “Open Hearts National Bus Tour: Takin' It To the Streets for Homeless Youth.” Kicking off on Saturday, June 7th, a national street outreach will be conducted in 30 cities across the nation, over four months, to help get homeless, runaway and sexually-exploited youth off the streets and to safety. We will provide them with food, medical assistance, clothing, direct linkages to service providers in the locations visited and participate in community service activities. We will assist in finding missing and exploited youth. We will also seek to get June 7th designated as National Street Outreach Day by Congress which would be a day to find homeless youth and help.
