 In every state, you may find a youth shelter or a place to track runaway youth. Tennessee is still left behind. Every Year, More Than 2 Million Kids in America Will Face a Period of Homelessness
Behind the face of every homeless young person is another; heartbreaking story – a teenage boy abused by his alcoholic parent, a pregnant girl rejected by her guardian, or a teenager trying to escape gang membership or a life of forced prostitution.

In case after case, the main cause of youth homelessness is physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse from parents or guardians.

The facts about homelessness are staggering, but acknowledging the depth of the problem is the first step in fixing it. We feel that Tennessee would benefit from a youth /runaway shelter. We need our leadership endorsement and community help to make this necessary movement here in the Tennessee area.
