JOIN US, Friday, March 22, Stanton Plaza, downtown Manchester, NH.
Sleep out with us. Support us. Spread the word about our event.
What does youth homelessness look like? You can't always tell. Kids with backpacks, walking down the street---could be any kid. And our numbers show that a few thousand youth in New Hampshire experienced homelessness last year. Some are in school. Some have jobs. Some are escaping abusive or neglectful homes, and some have been rejected from their own families for being different. Some struggle with trauma or mental illness, and others still, with addiction. Some are hungry, cold, and scared. Some are taking desperate measures to survive. And most of them are flying under the radar of their own communities.
The Waypoint SleepOut is an annual event through which we endeavor to raise our community consciousness about the problem, raise funds to aid and advocate for these youth, and get another step closer to ending youth homelessness in New Hampshire.
