I am sleeping out to help homeless youth in central Ohio. In 2017, 532 teenagers found shelter at Huck House. A lot of those teens got there because they did not feel safe at home, or because their families were experiencing homelessness. When teens go to the Huck House shelter, they don't get to run away from the crisis they are dealing with. They learn to fix things - to communicate better - to resolve conflict - so that they can go home or to another safe place and not be on the streets.
When I toured Huck House, I thought it felt like a home. I think that is what it should feel like when you are trying to work out problems: a place that is safe and comfortable and non-judging.
I am thankful that Huck House exists and I want to do my part to keep it strong for the youth who need it.
