We invite you to listen to a firsthand account from former CloseKnit board member Debbie Ryan.
Our Breakthrough Approach…
for addressing youth homelessness is love. We all need love—and young people who are fending for themselves with no stable place to call home especially need love. Of course they also need a roof, and a diploma, and a job, but what they most need is a caring adult who believes in them and will be there for the long haul.
And here’s the thing: those caring people are already in their lives. They’re the adults they turn to that first night they can’t sleep at home—their best friend’s mom, their neighbor, the cousin who lets them crash on a basement couch. We believe these relationships have staying power, and we’re catalyzing system change in order to invest in them.
