As a homeschooling mom, I am always on the lookout for a community project that welcomes teens. We participated in your annual fundraiser "The SleepOut". My son learned so much about what it is like to be homeless. We are very lucky to be where we are. We have a home and food. This opportunity to listen to, speak to and fundraise for those who had or presently were homeless was an eye opening and educational moment for him. He still talks about it today with his peers.
The wonderful thing is that the typical stigma these people have to live with did not present itself for my son. He was not afraid .Which for some reason , was the biggest question he received when he told people he was doing your event. " Aren't you afraid ?" You made it very relatable for a young mind. He was able to see them as a fellow human being with similar dreams and interests as his own. This was a direct result of the work that you do. It was a professionally run event. We laughed, we cried, we ate fantastic food, we participated in crafts, and met so many wonderful people. We can't wait to do it again!
