I have been a youth worker for over 8 years and I have always struggled with how to effectively articulate what it means to work with young people who experience homelessness. How do I explain all of the extenuating circumstances that surround each unique young person who finds themselves without stability? How do I express the immense since of privilege I feel that they have allowed me to be a small part of their lives? How do I refrain from yelling profanities at the people who say that “the homeless population just needs to pull themselves up by their boot straps”? This blog is the answer to all of those questions. Thank you for sharing the stories that get lost in our everyday lives.
Thank you for making the Invisible Visible.
