Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Homeless & Housing, Homeless Centers, Human Services

Mission: Created by teens to help underprivileged, homeless and displaced youth, THT works community wide, going directly to the streets with encouragement, donations, hygiene kits, winter and summer survival kits, food and water while directing them to resources for shelter and services. We are working on going Mobil, with street outreach units to bring help quickly and efficiency into communities and going GLOBIL with cels of teen volunteers working in cities across the nation to support the teens in need in their own backyards. Peer to Peer support because nobody understands the needs of a teenager better then another teenager, while helping our brothers and sister survive we are also growing the next generation of philanthropists and community service leaders to make our world a better place.

Results: THT was founded in 2012 and began with 2 sisters and a stylish hand me down drive. Over the years we have gained 501 (c) (3) status, hundreds of teen volunteers, countless corporate and individual supporters. Our programs run year around and we are now in several other cities. The goal it to be nationwide with peer to peer support and ongoing anti-bullying presentations at every middle and high school, like the ones we currently have in place at YMCA's. Bringing awareness on sex/human trafficking issues that affect our youth and also help to those victims. Over the last 4 years we have impacted 1000's of young lives, even as they impact our own lives and hearts!

I love volunteering with other teens and making blankets, knitting scarves or putting together survival kits. But the most meaningful part of my volunteering with this group was when I got to deliver items to teens at a shelter. It really made me realize how lucky I am and made me want to do even more to help these kids that don't have anything. They were so excited to get things they really needed and wanted and even in their correct sizes. Very special and I will volunteer with them every time they need me.

I have been witness to the street outreach this group of teens does and it is amazing display of selflessness by teens that usually do not know the meaning of selfless. Food, school supplies, clothing and hygiene kits were handed out to hundreds of homeless youth in a very organized and kind manner.
