    Why ban youth from the Center On Halsted/Whole Foods lobby and the Whole Foods store for the rest of their lives? Currently, youth who have been suspended from Center on Halsted programming are permanently banned from using the lobby or entering the store even after their suspension is lifted. Many of these youth are experiencing homelessness and rely on the lobby as a safe warm place to be productive in achieving their goals, escape harsh weather (especially in the winter), and avoid violence on the streets. Prohibiting these youth from the lobby and store takes a way a crucial resource and stigmatizes them forever. Lifting the ban (along with the suspension) will enable these youth once again to work on bettering themselves, keep them safe and grounded, and show them the respect they deserve.
