Since 2009, we have gradually developed an organic roof top garden for our residents to learn about urban food production, sustainable technologies and to have the experience of producing food for Our Community. If you would like to visit our rooftop garden or support our project with your skills, labor or donation of tools, plants, seeds please contact us email@example.com
Bill to Protect All Homeless Youth Introduced in the U.S. House
Bill to Protect All Homeless Youth Introduced in the U.S. House The True Colors Fund Applauds Introduction of Inclusive, Bipartisan Bill to Reauthorize the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act in the U.S. House of Representatives Today, Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) and Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) introduced H.R. 1779, the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act, to reauthorize the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA). The reauthorization recognizes the needs of all young people, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth experiencing homelessness. Research continues to show that while LGBT youth make up just seven percent of the general youth population, they comprise 40 percent of the 1.6 million youth that are homeless in America each year.
“What makes your heart sing?”
We are a community of homeless, formerly homeless, never-been-homeless men, women and children living and working together to serve one another. We are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, welcoming each new resident with, “What makes your heart sing?” Ending homelessness requires developing communities and neighborhoods that include rather than exclude people, communities that are established on the basis of participation, creativity and celebration.
