Homeless and Helpless
November is Youth Homeless Awareness month. Not a celebration but a month when national organizations like Homeless Youth Among Us.org try to raise the awareness tof the plight of over 1 million children in our country. According to their website over 1.3 million homeless kids are on the street or couch-surfing on any given day. The shocking news for Maine is that there are twelve (12) thousand homeless children right here in our state, on our streets. Sleeping on floors and couches, living in tents and railway cars. (Homeless Youth Among Us) Don’t you think its time to get these kids off the streets? In a country that leads the world in resources isn’t it time to get our children off the streets and into safe, permanent homes.
