A NEW DAY DAWNS FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE'S HOMELESS YOUTH!
March 30, 2016
On any given night, an estimated 300 youth are homeless in Greater Manchester for a range of reasons such as abuse, neglect, mental illness, substance abuse, strained relationships, gender or sexual identity, and poverty. They are at great risk and suffer many consequences.
Child and Family Services helps approximately 1,500 runaway, homeless and street youth, per year, providing them with the BASIC ELEMENTS FOR SURVIVAL and the STUFF WITH WHICH TO SUCCEED.
On Friday, March 25, 2016, in a show of solidarity, members of the community slept out in Stanton Plaza in downtown Manchester, NH, to raise awareness and funds to help homeless youth.
Proceeds from this event help to fulfill basic needs such as food, clothing, and access to shelter and medical care, and will support mental health and substance abuse counseling, educational advocacy, job search and housing.
