Kory came to the U.S. from Honduras where she was threatened by gang violence. She slept on friends’ couches before finding LAYC's housing programs. Kory’s situation is not unique for unstably-housed youth in DC. They are afraid of adult shelters, embarrassed to admit they are homeless, and don’t know where to seek help.
On any given night, there are an estimated 500 homeless youth in the District; many have aged out of foster care or run away from or been kicked out of their family home after physical or sexual abuse, family conflict, or rejection of youth's LGBTQ identity.
Our goal is to raise $3,000! Your support means the world to vulnerable youth like Kory.
